Pro-life dissension on PBA ban

Pro-abort hardliners aren’t all who oppose the Partial Birth Abortion Ban. Some pro-life hardliners do as well. From

Conversion stories I: prettyinpink

I’m launching a new feature called “Conversion stories.” There have been a couple on this blog in the last month – abortion proponents who came here to duel and over time converted to the pro-life position. I applaud these people for giving honest thought to pro-life apologetics, confronting their own ideology with it, and then […]

March of Dimes II

I extended my April 26 March of Dimes column, which was published today. MOD’s first 2007 WalkAmerica fundraiser is tomorow. Pro-lifers need to know that money they donate to MOD may go to support the culture of death. In addition to the information I blogged yesterday is this and more, in today’s column: MOD claims, […]

Will pro-lifers resurrect free speech McCain-Feingold killed?

Yesterday the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Wisconsin Right to Life v. Federal Elections Commission, which challenges the abysmal McCain-Feingold campaign finance law. A large coalition of groups, including the ACLU and AFL-CIO, filed briefs supporting WIRTL. The legislature passed McCain-Feingold in 2002 to kill free speech before elections. It bars corporations and labor […]

The March of Dimes marches for death

This Saturday, April 28, the March of Dimes will launch its 2007 list of risks and note one strangely missing. MOD trips over its own feigned ignorance. Its site reads: Prematurity has been escalating steadily and alarmingly over the past two decades. One out of eight babies is born prematurely in the United States…. Despite […]

The dinner party test

My favorite pro-abort, Jeff V., sent me this Independent [London] has published an amazing report indicating that Britain faces a “crisis” in the availability of abortion. It seems that “an unprecedented number of doctors are refusing to be involved in carrying out the procedure.” As the paper reports, “The exodus of doctors prepared to perform […]

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a pro-life organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
