A group of “experts” have created quite a stir by publishing an article in which they conclude that there is no difference between aborting a fetus and killing a newborn for any reason. The article, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, can be read here.
Is it not ironic that these immoral academics, who champion the killing of a whole group of individuals based upon their age and/or disability, protest the death threats they themselves have received since the publication of their article?
I will say that they inadvertantly got one thing right: There is no difference between killing a fetus and killing a newborn. Bravo, you evil people.

The journal’s editor, Prof Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, said the article’s authors had received death threats since publishing the article. He said those who made abusive and threatening posts about the study were “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society”.
