Francis Galton, Margaret Sanger, Winston Churchill and Adolph Hitler would be proud! The Eugenics Movement is on the march again.
The Telegraph reports that “a newly-published article in the Journal of Medical Ethics, says newborn babies are not ‘actual persons’ and do not have a ‘moral right to life’……….
They argue: ‘The moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.’
Rather than being ‘actual persons’, newborns were ‘potential persons’. They explained: ‘Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’ “.
