Ethicists

Next time someone tells you that their proposed legislation on euthanasia, IVF, cloning, abortion or any of the other death-cult favourites has been "fully approved by ethicists" you can show them this.

As someone once said, "Bioethics: we call it that because "the-science-of-figuring-out-who-we-can-kill"

is too long.
The two are quick to note that they prefer the term “after-birth abortion“ as opposed to ”infanticide.” Why? Because it “[emphasizes] 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.”

The authors also do not agree with the term euthanasia for this practice as the best interest of the person who would be killed is not necessarily the primary reason his or her life is being terminated.

Ah yes, good old Monash University. We know it well.

As a friend of mine said, "ethics" is what you get when you don't have morals.
