More On Board for Killing Newborns

The move to start legally killing sick newborns in the United Kingdom is gathering steam. Hard on the heels of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists calling for the euthanasia of disabled babies and certain high members of the Anglican Church agreeing with the call, a British bioethics council is now recommending the same thing.

This is a terribly tragic situation, a clear example that Western society has indeed become a culture of death.

Steven Ertelt of reports the whole sordid story here but I want to make sure you don't miss this point from the report -- "The group also said promoting euthanasia would reduce late-term abortions as parents could go ahead with the birth and kill the baby afterwards if they decide she would have too much trouble leading a healthy life."

God have mercy.
