Sanctity of life view will “collapse,” Peter Singer predicts

By Sarah Terzo Philosopher Peter Singer, who supports killing disabled infants on the grounds that they are not yet “people,” wrote “During the next 35 years, the traditional view of the sanctity of human life will collapse….only a rump of hardcore, know-nothing religious fundamentalists will defend the view that every human life, from conception to …

Why Democrats must be soft on infanticide

By Dave Andrusko Elsewhere today I plan to write about a post that appears on a pro-abortion site that cynically dismisses as “just politics” our concerns over babies aborted because they have Down syndrome. If you read my interpretation of the writer, you’ll see that the only way they can live with their consciences is …

How opposition to protecting abortion survivors points to growing specter of infanticide

By Paul Stark, Communications Associate, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life In late February, the U.S. Senate tried to pass legislation requiring ordinary medical care for newborn babies who survive abortion—the medical care any other infants born alive at the same age would receive. Abortion advocacy groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL opposed it. Forty-four senators …

Another failed effort to hide Democrats’ support for infanticide

By Dave Andrusko You can always, always, always tell when you’ve uncovered a truth that anti-life forces desperately want kept hidden. They will scream to high heaven, mix categories so as to blur the point, and insist that they would never do what they just got through suggesting they would do. Welcome to infanticide by …

Pro-abortion excuses for infanticide have a familiar ring

By Dave Andrusko The resemblances are uncanny. I am referring to the Democrats’ response to the need to protect abortion survivors today and what they were saying during the long, long debate over partial-birth abortions (PBA) in the 1990s and early 2000s. We were told incessantly that PBAs didn’t take place. Who would deliver all …

A brilliant critique of the Democrats’ phony defense of infanticide

By Dave Andrusko On Thursday we reposted what I consider the best analysis yet of the vote for infanticide, by which I mean a vote against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The in-depth look was provided by Paul Stark of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life and ran under the headline, “Here’s exactly how Minnesota …

How Early Christians Resisted Infanticide by Loving Their Neighbors

By Kirk Walden Recent news events—particularly New York’s passage of a sweeping abortion law which clearly embraces infanticide—are leading many in the Christian community to wonder whether we will ever see the end of abortion. After all, if we can’t hold back infanticide, how can things do anything but get worse? New York’s law, however, …

Here’s exactly how Minnesota Senator Tina Smith justified her vote for infanticide

By Paul Stark On Feb. 25, Minnesota’s two U.S. senators, Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, joined 42 other senators to successfully block legislation to protect newborn babies who survive abortion.

Infanticide— “a barbaric step backward to pre-civilized past.”

By Dave Andrusko As we often do the last post of the day I’d like to look at one item (abortion, in this case) through the lens of another (“assisted” suicide). Way back in 2014, you’ll recall Brittany Maynard became the face of “assisted suicide.” It was no accident the assisted suicide movement, led by …

Defending Infanticide is now Pro-Abortion dogma

By Ed Mechmann Editor’s note. This is excerpted from the “Stepping Out of the Boat” blog Mr. Mechmann writes for the Archdiocese of New York. On Monday, the United States Senate couldn’t muster enough votes to pass a bill banning infanticide. Yes, you read that correctly. A practice that in a civilized society would be …
