Ethicists give thumbs-up to infanticide
Two more ethicists join Peter Singer in claiming that, it abortion is acceptable, why not infanticide?
Indeed, in terms of those who hold an abortion – accepting mindset, their claim is not absurd.
BUT, in terms of being against the taking of life at any stage, their claim should give us further pause for pressing for the issue of abortion to be constantly at the forefront of our demands for justice in society. Infanticide? It is difficult to imagine most people accepting that practice, but stranger claims have distorted our moral thinking before. Also, if euthanasia is ever legalized, there will be even less support for the inviolability of human life.
