I Feel The Same Way About Oxford Ethicists

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”.

I'm assuming that these fellows need some more grant money, so they published something they think provocative.  Otherwise, I would suggest that they not use the word "moral" when they don't know what it means.

I did appreciate this reaction from one of their critics:  "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."
