The Surest Path To Hell: Just Keep Listening To ‘The Experts’

George Orwell said that some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them, for no ordinary man could be such a fool. The record of twentieth century intellectuals was especially appalling in this regard. Scarcely a mass-murdering dictator of the twentieth century was without his intellectual supporters, not simply in his own country, but also in foreign democracies, where people were free to say whatever they wished. Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Hitler all had their admirers, defenders, and apologists among the intelligentsia in Western democratic nations, despite the fact that these dictators ended up killing people of their own country on a scale unprecedented even by despotic regimes that preceded them” – Thomas Sowell, Intellectuals and Society, p. 2.

The road to hell is paved with “intellectuals” and “experts.”  That’s the record of history.

The next time you see a beatific mother lovingly holding her baby, kindly suggest to her that she ought to instead pursue the liberal path and slam it on the ground and bash its brains out:

Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say
Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending their lives is no different to abortion, a group of medical ethicists linked to Oxford University has argued.

The article, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, says newborn babies are not “actual persons” and do not have a “moral right to life”. The academics also argue that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it turns out to be disabled when it is born.

The journal’s editor, Prof Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, said the article’s authors had received death threats since publishing the article. He said those who made abusive and threatening posts about the study were “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society”.

The article, entitled “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?”, was written by two of Prof Savulescu’s former associates, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva.

They argued: “The moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.”

Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’.

“We take ‘person’ to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived of this existence represents a loss to her.”
 
As such they argued it was “not possible to damage a newborn by preventing her from developing the potentiality to become a person in the morally relevant sense”.
 
The authors therefore concluded that “what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled”.
 
They also argued that parents should be able to have the baby killed if it turned out to be disabled without their knowing before birth, for example citing that “only the 64 per cent of Down’s syndrome cases” in Europe are diagnosed by prenatal testing.
 
Once such children were born there was “no choice for the parents but to keep the child”, they wrote.
 
“To bring up such children might be an unbearable burden on the family and on society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care.”
 
However, they did not argue that some baby killings were more justifiable than others – their fundamental point was that, morally, there was no difference to abortion as already practised.
 
They preferred to use the phrase “after-birth abortion” rather than “infanticide” to “emphasise that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus”.
 
Both Minerva and Giubilini know Prof Savulescu through Oxford. Minerva was a research associate at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics until last June, when she moved to the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at Melbourne University.
 
Giubilini, a former visiting student at Cambridge University, gave a talk in January at the Oxford Martin School – where Prof Savulescu is also a director – titled ‘What is the problem with euthanasia?’
 
He too has gone on to Melbourne, although to the city’s Monash University. Prof Savulescu worked at both univerisities before moving to Oxford in 2002.
 
Defending the decision to publish in a British Medical Journal blog, Prof Savulescu, said that arguments in favour of killing newborns were “largely not new”.
 
What Minerva and Giubilini did was apply these arguments “in consideration of maternal and family interests”.
 
While accepting that many people would disagree with their arguments, he wrote: “The goal of the Journal of Medical Ethics is not to present the Truth or promote some one moral view. It is to present well reasoned argument based on widely accepted premises.”
 
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, he added: “This “debate” has been an example of “witch ethics” – a group of people know who the witch is and seek to burn her. It is one of the most dangerous human tendencies we have. It leads to lynching and genocide. Rather than argue and engage, there is a drive is to silence and, in the extreme, kill, based on their own moral certainty. That is not the sort of society we should live in.”
 
He said the journal would consider publishing an article positing that, if there was no moral difference between abortion and killing newborns, then abortion too should be illegal.
 
Dr Trevor Stammers, director of medical ethics at St Mary’s University College, said: “If a mother does smother her child with a blanket, we say ‘it’s doesn’t matter, she can get another one,’ is that what we want to happen?
 
“What these young colleagues are spelling out is what we would be the inevitable end point of a road that ethical philosophers in the States and Australia have all been treading for a long time and there is certainly nothing new.”
 
Referring to the term “after-birth abortion”, Dr Stammers added: “This is just verbal manipulation that is not philosophy. I might refer to abortion henceforth as antenatal infanticide.”

That hell is already in North America.  And for the record it is already in America – in the person and presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (see also here and here).

The Nazis didn’t begin with Hitler.  They began a full generation before Hitler came to power, in the minds of intellectuals who contaminated German culture with their “expertise.”

One of the leading ideas that led to Nazism was Lebensunwertes Leben (life unworthy of life).

American liberals enthusiastically supported Hitler’s socialist fascism during his rise to power, just as they had supported totalitarian communism in the years before.

Nazism was always a creature and creation of the left. They didn’t call themselves the “National Socialist German Workers Party” for nothing. Nazism and Darwinian theory went hand in hand as the Nazis delved deep into American Progressive-born eugenics. Margaret Sanger – founder of Planned Parenthood and Nazi-sympathizer – strategically used abortion and birth control to weed out “racially inferior” peoples such as blacks and Jews.

Margaret Sanger – the heroine of the left – famously or infamously said:

We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the negro population.”

And she proceeded to do an incredibly good job at doing precisely that by getting black mothers to murder their very own babies with the full knowledge, consent and support of the Democrat Party.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg agreed:

“Frankly I had thought that at that time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of” — 7/2/09 Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I never cease to be stunned that black people in America overwhelmingly support the party that has actively sought their deaths after literally fighting a war to keep them in slavery.

And, mind you, if Democrats can do that to one group of people and then condition them to like it, there’s really no logical reason why they shouldn’t do similar things to other groups.

When the leftist judicial activists of the Supreme Court inflicted the sin of abortion on demand on the United States, many predicted that abortion would be followed by euthanasia.  They were savagely mocked by the left.  They were also right.  Assisted suicide is now the law of Oregon, Washington, Montana and Georgia.  And there is widespread movement to push it to other states.  They also predicted that abortion would lead to infanticide.  And having already elected a pro-infanticide murder president (see also here), America is on the verge of opening the door to that one-way ticket to hell as well.

That’s right: Obama has already taken the position that it’s perfectly okay to kill a baby who has survived an attempt at abortion and is outside his or her mother’s body.  And the next logical step from that is straightforward infanticide, as a Canadian judge recently ruled.

It can all be done in the name of “science,” just as has been done before.

And now we also already have organized, mandated euthanasia in the form of ObamaCare.

The Democrat Party is the party of the murder of 54 million innocent human beings.  It is the demonic party of hell.  And in these last days before the Antichrist comes liberals are getting more and more demonic with every passing day.
