Slate has published a wonderful series of photos of babies only seconds in the world. 

According to some very prominent bioethicists – past and present – certain, or even any, of these littlest people are killable – either because they are denigrated as human “non-persons” or because they have terminal or seriously disabling conditions. These advocates for infanticide include:

– Peter Singer.

– Joseph Fletcher.

– Udo Schuklenk.

– Jonathan Glover. 

 Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva

– Jacob M. Appel.

– Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche.

It’s already happening (again). Netherlander doctors openly kill disabled newborns under the Groningen Protocol, a bureaucratic killing checklist published with all due respect in medical journals (including the New England Journal of Medicine).

It is also worth recalling that a representative for Planned Parenthood of Florida once okayed infanticide after a botched abortion in legislative testimony.

So. I applaud the photographs. But, we also have to remember that the right to life of these newbies is under a material threat.  L’Chaim!
