After-Birth Abortion?

Did you know that some liberal “scholars” published an article in a supposedly reputable journal suggesting that it should be just as permissible to kill a newborn baby as it is to kill an unborn child?  What will this journal publish next?  An argument for killing Jews?  For reinstating slavery?  Our abortion culture is creating a world where what should be unthinkable is being actively debated in the “best” of publications.

I know that I’m sensitive to questions about whether life is “worth living” or “worth protecting” even when babies are disabled or moms face challenges.  After all, my brother is disabled, and I was a teenage mom.  But I’d hope and expect that even the people who dislike me, who dislike my beliefs, and who dislike my family can unite in believing that it’s a shame that at least a few members of our cultural elite have lost all respect for vulnerable human life, and it’s a further shame that a widely-read journal gave them a platform for their hate.

    Most definitely liberal, Professor Peter Singer of Princeton university advocates the same. This man who should be in a padded room, is of the opinion and promotes the concept that a baby up to one year of age can be murdered by the baby’s mother. He occupies the chair of ethics at Princeton.

        Do you?? You are just mean.

          remark was meant not for for Bristol–for James

  • Jael

    Richard and James,
    Maybe in stead of attacking Bristol y’all should look into this yourselves! Name calling and acting like the names you called her doesn’t accomplish anything! Get over yourselves and look at the bigger picture here! We need to help save this innocent children, not hate on each other! :-)

    Actually, ‘liberal’ in one sense is exactly right – the sense of letting the intellect trump all other considerations. What the article does well is bring out the underlying logic of total abortion rights, up to the end of the third trimester – the location of the baby/foetus is not morally relevant, so if it’s OK in the one case, then it is OK in the other. Totally bonkers, but completely rational and logical. Richard Head (surely a pseudonym?!) might like to read Jonathan Haidt for context on this – then he wouldn’t be so liberal with his insults (liberal in another two meanings of the term).

  • James

    Highlighting a couple of sickos and trying to label them liberals instead of the morally bankrupt human excrement that they are, doesn’t change this fact.

    In fact according to the logic of those you highlight we could in essence just execute them for being morally bankrupt, less than human.

    You display your ignorance so proudly… I am glad that you do though, because it only harms the republican party image more.

    Thank you

      Peter Singer freely claims too be a liberal, a progressive and is proud of his statements on abortion. He is also angry that so few agree with him.

      • James

        So few agree with him… exactly. That is not what Bristol is trying to get people to believe

        • Surly Curmudgen

          James it is obvious that what has you angry is that, when Bristol speaks some people listen. LOL

          • James

            I’m not angry at all… there are not enough people who listen. I’m sure there a few people who would listen to the sick ideas of those that Bristol highlighted today as well, doesn’t mean they will have an affect. Most people see them for what they are, just like Bristol is seen for what she is.

    • Surly Curmudgen

      James, It must be so relaxing to be a liberal. You never have to take ownership of the circumstances in your life, you’re constantly a victim of other people, you can call anyone who disagrees with you sexist, homophobic, bigoted, etc and never have to argue with them, you uphold no moral standard so when you act immorally nobody can accuse you of being a hypocrite, you’re only accountable to your own heart and feelings, and every destructive action that comes from “following your heart” is inherently moral and above reproach. Man, even if I was a liberal I would have massive respect for Conservatives for not taking the path of least resistance.

      • James

        I am no victim, you are a victim of your misinformation.

        How about you argue the issue with facts instead of just trying to insult the person you disagree with. Bristol is trying to paint liberals with an evil brush, instead of pointing to the fact that no liberal has defended these ideas. She is being dishonest, and you know it.

        LIberals would never support this, and it is lie to try and say that they do.
        If one republican murders his wife doesn’t mean all republicans are wife killers does it.

        The moral issue here falls on the liar.

        • Surly Curmudgen

          Bristol is not trying to paint liberals with an evil brush, that is not at all nessary. Liberals paint themselves evil every day. A political philosophy that advocates enslaving it’s citizens is inherently evil. A political philosophy that views the murder of fifty million babies as pro-choice is inherently evil. A political philosophy That embraces lying, cheating, stealing even murder to advance their agenda as laudable behavior is inherently evil.

          • James

            Wow, what an evil world you live in! I’m sorry for you it must be awful to live like that.
            I just have no comment for the worldview you hold. I’ll have to pray for you

        • Missy

          James get a hobby! You are just so very annoying! Go talk your crap to someone who cares! We are here because we like her and you just make yourself look like a stupid troll.

          • James

            Logic can be annoying for those who try to deny it. I apologize for using it

    • Cillab

      Wow James, aren’t you excited to have this platform to be hate-filled, rude and nasty?!

      • James

        Not really, It doesn’t excite me that in this day and age that women and people in general still have to defend themselves from those that would lie to spread their hate

  • http://facebook Linda Jones

    You are spot on… Thank you and your family for your stand in conservative beliefs and using your sites to express them!!! God bless!!!

  • madeline

    Oh My! aren’t some of you liberals sensitve>>> The truth hurts don’t it??? Bristol said some not all.

  • Abigail

    To the comments saying “no liberal would agree to this”,

    Read again. She never said “all liberals think this”. She is using a fact that A liberal said this. It doesn’t mean all liberals agree nor they all don’t. Simply, she stated SOMEONE ELSES opinion and they happened to be liberal. Don’t get upset about it and bash her cause you can’t read.

  • Katie

    Did I read that right? Did they really just try to tell us that “newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons” and then go on to call a newborn child a “potential person”??!!??? This is horrendous!

  • Cassandra

    Thanks for sharing, Bristol. The liberals need to be outed for what they are, as one of these hateful commentators just said, “morally bankrupt human excrement.” That’s exactly what libs are. Good for you for spreading the news, B. :) Don’t let the morally bankrupt discourage you because those of who support you know the truth. The libs’ opinions aren’t worth more than crap that spews from their mouths.

    • James

      Well, looks like Bristol succeeded in her mission. At least for one person

  • James

    How about we highlight the hypocrite and purveyor of feigned outrage Sarah Palin.

    Watch Sarah Palin condemn Biden for his “in chains” remark then one week later use the same remark herself and say Obama is putting children in chains.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/08/22/1122958/-Mitt-Romney-retroactively-calls-Sarah-Palin-a-racist

    • Surly Curmudgen

      That’s nothing new, all progressives hate Palin. This hate stems from a clear understanding on their part that a Palin Presidency will end the progressive agenda and relegate their philosophy to a library shelve labeled dead political ideologies.
      What, you didn’t know that Romney the rino is a progressive?

      • James

        It’s not just Progressives. Republicans, Independents, etc, don’t believe Sarah’s “vision” is a good one either. She has her fans, but it stops there. The general public would never give her power to make changes.

        • Cillab

          So why waste your time spewing your hate?

          • James

            Disagreement is not hate, defense of yourself is not hate.
