Every society has at one time or another practiced eugenics to some degree, if not openly advocating the eradication of those less perfect or ethnically undesirable. Perfection of course, determined by those making the decision to end or prevent life for others. This has now culminated in the growing movement around the globe to rationalize the culling of populations via after-birth abortions, voluntary sterilization, and psycho-surgeries intended to murder, prevent reproduction, or reduce to a blithering but docile idiot anyone who does not meet the standards of perfection.

The recent Journal of Medical Ethics article promoting the concept that a newborn should be allowed to die if :

  • a)The family can’t afford the child
  • b)The family just does not want the child
  • c)There is a genetic problem indicating possible disease or
  • d)The child is impaired or disabled in some way

I have to wonder here how long it would be until one of these medical ethicists decided that if a toddler reacted adversely to a vaccine for instance and became autistic or neurologically or physically impaired from the vaccine, would these ethical medical professors believe it would be alright to allow that child to die too?

The authors are Alberto Giubilini and co-author Francesca Minerva with the Department of Philosophy, University of Milan, Milan, Italy, and the Centre for Human Bioethics, Monash University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, , CAPPE, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Victoria 3010, Australia.

It seems that Minerva and Giubilini believe it is ethical, moral and quite alright to murder a newborn that does not meet their high ethical standards.

when circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.”

Minerva and Giubilini also believe that three days should lapse before a birth certificate is issued. During those three days those critical decisions could be made. Is the child perfect? Can we afford it? And most importantly….Do we even want it? More
