In the wake of the Obama administration dictate that private insurance companies cover contraceptives and abortifacients, supporters have defined anyone who would oppose this mandate as waging a “war against women.”
The same cannot be said for what the cultural Left favors – a war against babies.
The latest front of “advanced” leftist medical ethics has emerged from the experts at Oxford University. They don’t just favor abortion, even partial-birth abortion. They favor “after-birth abortion.”
It is stomach-turning stuff. Killing babies is no different than abortion, these academics argued in the Journal of Medical Ethics. Ironically, pro-lifers would agree, and have long pointed to this logical progression in the face of laughter. The “ethicists” now explain it somewhat differently. Parents should be allowed to kill their newborn babies because they’re still “morally irrelevant.”
The article carries the chilling title “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?” Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva argue newborn babies aren’t “actual persons” but “potential persons.” Team Oxford ….explained that “what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.” Read more of Brent Bozell’s article: here
As shocking as this might sound, it’s nothing new. The Left has been advocating the ‘un-humaneness’ of babies for many decades. Their only debate is when should a child be given ‘human status’ – some arguing 12 months after birth.
President Barack Hussein Obama voted against the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act (in Illinois) in 2001 and 2002. Obama was advocating that an attending doctors could not be held guilty of a crime when he snuffed out the life of a botched abortion survivor. Why? Because “the intent of the Mother” was the death of the baby. Such compassion is overwhelming. It makes you wonder if there will come a time when Democrats will support offering newborns up in funeral pyres to worship their god of Abortion or holy Mother earth? Unfortunately, also not a ‘new’ concept. Diodorus Siculus wrote that babies were roasted to death inside the burning pit of the god Baal Hamon. But we consider ourselves a moral, civil society?
As the Liberals continue to wail and rail the absolutely phony war that Republicans have against women, and one which only the morons, self deluded and well experienced fabricators could possibly believe, lets not forget the War On Babies that the Democrat Party has been waging since the ’60’s. You’ll never hear a Democrat Congressperson speaking against curbing abortion. Abortion is a tenant of their Liberal beliefs. Pregnancy looked upon as a disease, an illness, an affliction, something more than an inconvenience. That should also be shocking to every American; but the new, radical Democrat Party, is well versed in subterfuge, misdirection and factual fabrication to replace their failed and horrendous policies.
The only war on American woman is the direct attack on life in the womb. And according to Barack Obama and his far Left associates, friends and colleges in warfare, that war is against “medial waste” – not human life.
