Medical Ethics going off the rails – The curious case of that “after-birth abortion” paper

Dr. Mengele’s Still Drumming”

See that baby in the corner?
Her life might not be so good!
I can tell she’ll be a problem…
That much, ma’am, is understood!

She’s not really quite a “person”;
Yes, we’re sure she’s unaware.
Her life may not be worth living…
Let’s “abort” and show we care.

She’s just not what we’d call “human”…
She’s not really at that stage.
“Cute” enough, but just not “with it”…
Unaware and disengaged.

She has no real moral standing…
Not just yet, and that’s the glitch!
She’s no diff’rent from a tomcat,
Or some tiny mongrel bitch.

We’ll decide for you what’s “human”…
When a “what” becomes a “who”!
On these shifting sands of reason,
Moral Law we may undo.

These things change, ma’am. Please don’t worry!
We know best about these things;
We’ve been schooled in Bio-Ethics,
Singing songs that Singer sings!

That’s the song of Peter Singer…
(Margaret Sanger sang it, too).
If that melody’s familiar,
Maybe you should ask the Jew.

That’s the downbeat of Eugenics,
Euthanasia’s Rhythm Band.
Dr. Mengele’s still drumming
Out there on that shifting sand.

“The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teaching comes through hypocritical liars whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.” -The Apostle Paul (1Timothy 4: 1-2)

“[N]ew-born humans are neither persons nor quasi-persons, and their destruction is in no way intrinsically wrong.” – Dr. Michael Tooley, Professor of Ethics , University of Colorado, President of the American Philosophical Society (2011-2012)

“Human babies are not born self-aware or capable of grasping their lives over time. They are not persons. Hence their lives would seem to be no more worthy of protection than the life of a fetus. “ -Dr. Peter Singer PhD, Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University

“After ruling our thoughts and our decisions about life and death for nearly two thousand years, the traditional Western ethic has collapsed.” -Dr. Peter Singer, PhD., Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University
