Infanticide and Abortion are Equally Wrong

Peter Singer, an atheist professor of bioethics at Princeton University, says that it’s morally okay to kill disabled newborns if their parents don’t want them.

Kathy Tran, a Democratic State Delegate of the Virginia legislature, has a bill that would legalize murdering the baby at any point, through the third trimester, up to 40 weeks–up to the moment of birth, as they were being born, and after.

Virginia governor Ralph Northam said, “The infant would be delivered (and set on a table, like a piece of furniture). The infant would be kept ‘comfortable.’ The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” And then the baby would be killed by letting it starve or completely dehydrate, or by administering lethal chemicals. A Gallup poll has found that only 13 percent of Americans favor making third-trimester abortions ‘generally’ legal. I wonder what the percentage is of those who would legalize infanticide, especially after viewing a video of this.

Life starts at conception, and killing the child at any point is murder. I don’t care at what point of pregnancy the unborn human is fully formed with arms, hands, feet, fingers, fingernails, or teeth, or if the mother is dilating or even in distress; except that it may be repulsive enough to some people to make them see that abortion is wrong.

The baby is undeserving of violent death on either side of the mother’s cervix; and, there’s nothing “comfortable” about it.

It seems that the only common ground I have with pro-abortionists is, “If abortion is OK, then infanticide is too.” They are both murder.
