Symposium on After-Birth Abortion

Dear Readers

I have four kids at home with me right now by myself. And I am sitting on some interesting stuff and I don't know if I will have time to sift through it to blog about it.

So rather than not publishing anything about it at all, I thought I'd post the links FYI, in case any of you might want to read it and blog about it. Given the topic, I think it's worth posting. It will give you an insight into the world of bioethics.

At least one of these articles justifies infanticide in cases of immense suffering, but I forget which one.

Shouldn't this be considered some sort of hate crime against babies?
