News Item: Another Gosnell?

The news item linked to at the bottom of this page discusses a case in Texas where another abortionist is accused of killing live-born babies. Nearly every ordinary American agrees that this is of course a horrific crime. Since this is the case, why do we call attention to these kinds of things? What is their relationship to the pro-life cause?

First of all, this kind of thing is in itself horrible, and we should prevent it at all costs. Abortionists who do this kind of thing are rightfully charged with murder and punished accordingly under current American law. It is likely that it will remain this way in most places for a while, however we do have reason to be concerned. First of all, this kind of thing is bad and ought to be prevented. With abortion being legal, the killing of live-borns is easier because it can fly under the radar. Whether or not the baby is born or still in the womb, it is still the horrible act of murder to kill him or her. However, even those who support abortion should be able to agree with us here that killing live-borns is seriously wrong. Something to think about then is whether or not having liberal abortion laws supports or is at least conducive to such acts. It seems as though this is obviously the case. The second major concern is that there is a real slippery slope here. Some argue that slippery slope appeals are useless red-herrings but in some cases, this is not true at all. Check this-> out for info on the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Basically, we need a federal law to protect infants who have survived abortion yet some still oppose it!

Another point I would like to make about these post-birth abortions is that they are not illogical given the pro-abortion position. Rather, this is exactly what being pro-abortion entails. Certain “ethicists” and others have adopted the position that killing new-borns is permissible under certain circumstances (e.g. Peter Singer). This is alarming in that it is a horrible truth that shows how morally decadent we might become. At the same time it is not surprising because it is the logical conclusion of the pro-abortion position. The reason I say this is simple: There is no in-principle substantial difference between an unborn fetus and a newborn baby that would render killing the newborn wrong but not the pre-born. Once we admit that killing some humans is okay under certain conditions, it makes perfect sense that killing similar humans under similar conditions is okay. Of course, this just shows at the heart of the abortion position is the idea that human life can be discarded for convenience sake. More on this in a future post.

Up and Running again

This is the blog for the pro-life group on UD’s campus. Our goal as a club is to promote respect for human life in all stages, especially for the unborn because it is their life which is targeted the most today by abortion.

Look for us on student central, our facebook page, or here at the blog. We have meetings every other Monday at 7:30 pm in Gore 308.

Here at the blog we will be posting about the club, news items, and other pro-life information. Stay tuned, more is coming
