The unhappy outcome of society’s embrace of abortion: after-birth abortions. So called to hide what that really is:
Now promoted by a so-called medical ethicist near you.
Let’s paraphrase for a moment:
First they came for the unborn, who had no meaningful right to life, existing as they did in their mother’s womb; and we did nothing to save the unborn.
Then they came for the elderly ailing, who had no meaningful right to life, since they were in pain and a burden on others; and we did nothing to save the elderly ailing.
Then they came for the babies, who had no meaningful right to life because they were just too young to care for themselves or articulate their experiences & dreams; “their moral status was just like that of fetuses”; and we did nothing to save the babies.
When they come for us — what?! you think they won’t? — we truly will have no meaningful right to life, because we have allowed the murders and thus betrayed our humanity.
It’s a depraved species that encourages the killing of its young.
(And this statement from the journal’s editor, concerning death threats the so-called medical ethicists have allegedly received, is richly ironic:
“[T]here is a drive is to silence and, in the extreme, kill, based on their own moral certainty. That is not the sort of society we should live in.”
You don’t say.)
