By Dave Andrusko This is the last post of the week, so it will be relatively brief. That, however, is not a comment on its importance. We have written about “after-birth abortion” numerous times in 2012 and will again in the future. “Nursery Crimes: on the Move from Abortion to Infanticide” was written by Burnell …Continue reading "After-birth abortion: “Malevolent apologetics”"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. As we approach January 23, 2013, the 40th anniversary of Roe, we’ll continue to run articles from the past that we believe well illuminate the nature of our battle, particularly how the abortion cancer has metastasized. NRL News Today has covered the absolutely reprehensible case made for infanticide (dressed up …Continue reading "“There is nothing magical about passing through the birth canal that transforms it from a fetus into a person”"
By Dave Andrusko NRL News Today has covered the absolutely reprehensible case made for infanticide (dressed up as “after-birth abortion”) at great length. And we will again today. But why? Why, that is, beyond that the obvious fact that the case made by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva is massively wrong-headed …Continue reading "“There is nothing magical about passing through the birth canal that transforms it from a fetus into a person”"
By Wesley J. Smith Andrew Ferguson of the Weekly Standard is one of the best writers writing. Recently, he took on the “after birth abortion” controversy, which we have dealt with extensively, so no need to revisit the details. But he opens with one of the most scathing criticisms of bioethicists I have ever read. …Continue reading "Bioethicist and “After-birth abortion?"
By Dave Andrusko Every time I’ve written about, or reprinted columns about, “after-birth abortion,” my inbox is flooded with responses. It’s not like pro-lifers hadn’t figured out that many “bioethicists” had spent decades cultivating the ground and planting the seeds for infanticide. Their indignation, rather, was not only that bioethicists Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva …Continue reading "“Medical Ethics” and “After-Birth Abortion”"
By Dave Andrusko Put the following two items together and I suspect perhaps it might give pause to even the hardest hard-core pro-abortionist. First, you debate Ann Furedi, chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, the rough equivalent of Planned Parenthood. You pull out a timeline of fetal development, but no matter how mature …Continue reading "“After-Birth Abortions”: in Hot Pursuit of Infanticide"
By Wesley J. Smith Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva created quite a ruckus when they proposed permitting “after-birth abortion” in a recent article in the Journal of Medical Ethics. To be sure, some of the reaction was too extreme. Death threats are never acceptable. But people had every right to push back hard against an …Continue reading "The after-birth abortion advocates’ non-apology apology"
By Dave Andrusko Not surprisingly, a there’s-no-difference-between-abortion-and-infanticide piece in a prominent bioethics journal continues to churn up a storm of passionate controversy. Today, as part of an ongoing series, National Right to Life News Today offers two more analyses of “After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?” by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva which appeared …Continue reading "“After-Birth Abortion”: another step in the campaign to soften resistance to infanticide"
By Dr. Peter Saunders Two bioethicists have stirred up huge controversy this week by publishing an article suggesting that infanticide is equivalent to abortion. Writing in the Journal of Medical Ethics, Alberto Giubilini from the University of Milan and Francesca Minerva from Melbourne University argue that foetuses and newborns ‘do not have the same moral …Continue reading "Leading bioethicists conclude infanticide no different from abortion"
By Dr. Peter Saunders The ‘Voice for Choice’ Coalition, an assemblage of pro-abortion groups and activists, has today issued a quite extraordinary statement which can be accessed on the ‘Open Democracy’ website. Titled ‘The Daily Telegraph is mistaken: We support doctors who provide abortion services’, it has been prompted by the Daily Telegraph’s recent investigation …Continue reading "British Pregnancy Advice Service’s interpretation of Abortion Act merits urgent parliamentary scrutiny"
