Ethicists Argue in Favor of ‘After-Birth Abortions‘ as Newborns ’Are Not Persons’
I don't know why this would surprise us. If human life has no intrinsic value, if we are only on the same level as other animals, then there is no reason to care about individual lives. This is the natural outcome of the worldview that ignores God and forgets that humans are made in His image and likeness.
In this worldview, babies with handicaps have no value. In this worldview, elderly who have stopped being productive have no value. In this worldview, the convenience of a baby can determine its future.
