Professor Singer on the Disabled


TRIGGER WARNING:  Discussion of killing little babies.
For John, BLUFWe need to think about the brave new world we are creating.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



This article goes back to 20 April, but it is about Professor Peter Singer, of Princeton, so it is always timely.  This is about a radio interview in which the "Princeton professor calls for killing disabled infants under Obamacare".

Professor Singer's views on letting the just born die is not news.  What is news is that he tells us that under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PP&ACA) it should be part of the program.

According to an article published Sunday by World Net Daily, a Princeton University professor has suggested that severely disabled infants be killed to cut health care costs and for moral reasons.nbsp; In a radio interview Sunday with Aaron Klein, broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM, Princeton University ethics professor Peter Singer argued it is "reasonable" for government or private insurance companies to deny treatment to severely disabled babies.

Several times during the interview Singer argued the health-care system under Obamacare should openly acknowledge health-care rationing and that the country should acknowledge the necessity of "intentionally ending the lives of severely disabled infants."nbsp; Singer also repeatedly referred to a disabled infant as "it" during the interview.

I am not saying it doesn't happen.  Rather, I am saying that it is cynical and heartless, that it is human life we are talking about.

And, can Professor Singer say "Death Panels"?

  "Obamacare".
