Paper Summary

Author’s Abstract

  1. This is a response to Giubilini and Minerva arguing that, on the basis of the similar moral status of the fetus and infant, infanticide is justifiable for many of the same reasons that justify abortion.
  2. It argues that, although the authors are correct in claiming the logical connection between abortion and infanticide, they are mistaken in their moral anthropology and so misunderstand which way the reasoning should cut.
  3. It concludes with an exhortation - especially to fellow pro-lifers - to have a different kind of discourse on these matters


Response to "Giubilini (Alberto) & Minerva (Francesca) - After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?"
