Defending after-birth abortion

On the subject of after-birth abortion, the editor of the Journal of Medical Ethics not only makes a defense for publishing it, but whines about the nasty responses it received.

As Editor of the Journal, I would like to defend its publication. The arguments presented, are [from] the most eminent philosophers and bioethicists in the world, including Peter Singer, Michael Tooley and John Harris in defense of infanticide, which the authors call after-birth abortion.”

Is that so! “In defense of infanticide…” If this is not a fine example of how post-modern, liberal academics lose their grip on reality, I don’t know what is.

The “most popular” comment by one Eric_Dunham in the blog comment section is not to be missed:

…You attacked the deepest held beliefs of the majority of humanity. You allowed an article to be published that advocates dispassionate violence against the most helpless of all human beings.
Yet, somehow, all you’re worried about is the “deep opposition” … “to liberal values and fanatical opposition to” … “reasoned engagement.”

I do like it when “liberal values” get exposed, and real reasoning gets a chance to stand up.
