Canadian ethicist advocates ‘post-birth abortion’ for newborns

A Canadian bioethicist and philosophy professor at Queen's University is lobbying for acceptance of "postnatal abortion" to justify euthanizing newborns with disabilities, reports LifeSiteNews.

Udo Schuklenk, a well known supporter of euthanasia, assisted suicide, and abortion, said he believes doctors "can justifiably euthanize certain severely impaired neonates," and that parents "should be able to freely decide on what would amount to postnatal abortion,” in an article published in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery.

"Once we have concluded that death is what is in the best interest of the infant, it is unreasonable not to bring about this death as painlessly and as much controlled in terms of timing by the parents as is feasible," Schuklenk argues.

"If his prolonged dying is harmful to them (the parents) a further quality-of-life based argument in favor of terminating the infant's life is established," Schuklenk wrote.

Schuklenk rationalizes his argument in favor of "postnatal abortion" with the statement that "in morally important ways his [a newborn baby's] developmental state is closer to that of a fetus than to that of a person like you or me."

Moreover, he argues that there is no moral difference between killing an infant and letting the infant die a natural death, except that killing an infant is more "compassionate."
