“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” Romans 1:21

Just because something is logical doesn’t make it right. Try convincing the two bioethicists who authored the paper titled After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?” recently published in the Journal of Medical Ethics. The sum conclusion reached by these two enlightened individuals is that if human life is allowed to be terminated in the womb why not after the child is born? I have attached the link for the paper below. But here are some key quotes:

“Nonetheless, to bring up such children (children with DS or other disabilities) might be an unbearable burden on the family and on society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care. On these grounds, the fact that a fetus has the potential to become a person who will have an (at least) acceptable life is no reason for prohibiting abortion. Therefore, we argue that, when circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. In spite of the oxymoron in the expression, we propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus (on which ‘abortions’ in the traditional sense are performed) rather than to that of a child. Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be. Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk. Accordingly, a second terminological specification is that we call such a practice ‘after-birth abortion’ rather than ‘euthanasia’ because the best interest of the one who dies is not necessarily the primary criterion for the choice, contrary to what happens in the case of euthanasia.”

 

There are many things to find revolting in this paper but here are a few considerations for you.

(1.   It can and likely will happen here. Maybe you are thinking that this could never happen here. It is already happening in the Netherlands under what is referred to as the Groningen Protocol. Not only can it happen here but it is likely that it will happen here. Here is why! We are already aborting babies by the millions. We already view the lives of the unborn with disdain. Unless the Supreme Court throws it out, we are quickly moving to a healthcare model just like the Netherlands. They have a mixture of private and government insurance with “mandated” participation. When you read this paper on the defense of after-birth abortion you will see that one of the leading justifications for the allowance of “after birth” infanticide is money. Notice in the quote above the reference to the baby being unbearable to “society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care.” When the state becomes our caretaker they must do what is best for the collective and this “logically” overrules the rights of the individual.

(2.  We are reaping what we have sown. We have been teaching Social Darwinism in our government school system for some time now. There is an undisputable link between Hitler’s view of the “final solution” and his belief in Darwin. Darwin’s philosophy suited Hitler perfectly. Most people are unaware that the first printing (1859) of Darwin’s Magnum Opus was not known by its common name today, On the Origin of Species, but by, On the Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. The title was changed in 1872. Wow! Political Correctness sure has a long shelf life doesn’t it? America’s culture of death has the same roots. Research Margaret Sanger’s (founder of Planned Parenthood) views on Evolution and Darwinism. Study the history of Eugenics in America, and you will soon find the correlation with Nazi Germany. The net result is the same. Let’s do away with the inferior. Let’s do away with those that present a burden to society.

(3.   Personhood. It is the next logical conclusion to determine that if the “fetus” has no right to life and is truly not a person…why then would a newborn baby be considered a person? This is perverted logic.  According the Peter Singer a bioethicist at Princeton, one of our nation’s bulwarks of higher learning and enlightenment, “Human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons;” therefore, “the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.” This is the logic of a fool. Why? “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.” (Psalm 14:1) The “logical” conclusion is that if there is no God to determine human life (Acts 17:26) than we must act in his place. The choice of who lives and dies falls to us.

Ultimately, this paper shows us a deeply troubling line of reason. This should be a reminder to us that “reason” devoid of God’s grace is the natural outworking of mankind’s reprobate thinking. Here is God’s reasoning, “Come now, let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” (Isaiah 1:18)

Real wisdom dictates that we stand opposed to Logics next step.
