going beyond abortion

Writing in the Journal of Medical Ethics, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva have advanced an incredible argument. They say that abortion is widely accepted, there is no moral difference between a foetus and a newborn baby, therefore what they want to call "after-birth abortion" (killing a newborn) should be permissible.

The world has sunk to new depths. Killing newborn babies should be "permissible"? Who are these people, and what is wrong with them?

In the case of these two let us make the age of being an thinking human at 50. Since they are under the age, we can kill them without a thought.

They disgust me.

BTW this might help: There are three comment formats in Blogger, pop-up, full-page and embedded beneath the post. The pop-up and full-page formats were updated a couple of days ago and lost the 'subscribe by email' function. The full-page format also lost the 'collapse comments' function. I was on the full-page comment format but immediately changed over to the embedded format which has the 'subscribe by email' option and also allows threaded comments which I really like now.

Isn't it clear enough though that one can use their own premises and reach an entirely different conclusion?

If there is no difference between a newborn baby and a foetus in a woman's womb ...

then since murdering a newborn baby is morally evil, so is abortion.

(And therefore, so are the authors of that JME article ..)

That follows, doesn't it?

I agree with Nick 100% on this.
