Planned Parenthood removes blinders on PA abortion doctor

Not that we expect them to keep them off.

Planned Parenthood is apparently concerned that a Philadelphia abortion doctor may give baby-killing a bad name. Here's Michelle Malkin on the group's new-found concern over Kermit Gosnell:
Planned Parenthood now says it’s “appalled” by the Philadelphia house of horrors run by accused serial baby-killer and pregnant-mom murderer Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Bull.

What? Nobody signing on yet to defend the good doctor?

Me neither.

But what would an ethical discussion be without having a premier ethicist weigh in?

Here's Peter Singer on infanticide. From Wikipedia:

"Similar to his argument for abortion, Singer argues that newborns lack the essential characteristics of personhood—"rationality, autonomy, and self-consciousness"—and therefore "killing a newborn baby is never equivalent to killing a person, that is, a being who wants to go on living."

Singer: “Human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons”; therefore, “the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”

There you have it.

I have been saying for years that partial-birth abortion is the same as killing a live newborn.

We finally have some agreement on that score.

The silence you hear is the local liberals who for the first time in the history of Martin's blog are dumbstruck.
