Kissling is currently a Visiting Scholar at the University of PA Center for Bioethics.
Bioethics? Interesting. Princeton defines this as “the branch of ethics that studies moral values in the biomedical sciences.”
It seems to me Kissling is trying to abort not only her position but her entire department at U of PA after declaring at a conference on abortion at Princeton the weekend of October 15-16, “We have to get rid of the idea of evil.”
If there is no such thing as right or wrong there is no need for bioethics, right?
Of course Kissling longs for a world without judgment since abortion’s major stumbling block is most people innately believe it is murder.
But Kissling’s support of abortion entered the world of the bizarre when she also stated at the conference:
I don’t care how you accomplish it [the right to abortion], whether through a constitution, the UN, state laws or federals laws, or by the Taliban.
Kissling may have been exaggerating to make her point – or not, who knows?
Whatever, Kissling’s comment was offensive, as anti-feminist as one can get. The Taliban engages in the worst societal treatment of women on the planet, forcing them to wear burqas, banning their education, treating them as slave property, marrying them off as young girls, committing “honor” killings.
Kissling is saying these brutal human rights violations are acceptable if the Taliban supports legalized abortion.
This liberal feminist view of holding abortion supreme above all other women’s rights is actually what we’ve observed throughout the 2008 and 2010 election cycles. They would rather keep women down than lose the right to abort babies.
