So-Called Ethicist Says It’s Ok To Kill Children After Birth

Published

on

In a horrific article in the journal of Bioethics, a Norwegian bioethicist argued that parents may have the right to kill their infant children, even after they are born.

Joona Räsänen argued that  pro-life arguments against infanticide “are not convincing” and “cannot show infanticide to be immoral.”

He wrote:

[T]here might be an argument that gives, for example, the genetic parents a right to kill (or leave to die) their newborn infant even if the infant has a right to life. For example, it might be argued that people have a right to their genetic privacy and having the newborn infant in the world that carries the genetic material of the genetic parents violates their right to genetic privacy. Put another way: the fetus does not have a right to the genetic material of her parents.

So a new far-left argument for infanticide is that a child may somehow violate its parents’ “right to privacy.” If only these liberals would stand up for the right to privacy on hundreds of other issues, perhaps this argument could be considered sincere. Rather, it is the ranting of a deranged lunatic.

The real unanswered question is this: If parents have a right to “genetic privacy,” what would stop them from killing adult children? Can a 90-year-old grandmother kill her 60-year-old son in the name of “genetic privacy?”

Today, we call that murder. Tomorrow, it would be legal if far-left fantasyland academics had their way.

DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views

Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.

Published

Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.

The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.

I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.

It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.

Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.

Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
