Journal of Medical Ethics Supports Post Birth Abortion

by RevMark

On February 23, 2012, the Journal of Medical Ethics has published a paper supporting the thought that it is ok to perform “Post Birth Abortions”. The national media is not covering this at all.

Below is the official Abstract of the paper:

Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

Here are two links. The first is to the actual JME paper. The second is to an article on The Blaze.
