Pro-life campaigners have welcomed publication of an article arguing killing newborns should be “permissible”, saying it showed there was no moral difference between abortion and infanticide.

The article [2], which argued newborns and foetuses were only “potential persons” and not “actual persons”, has provoked a storm of protest.

The authors, whose piece was published in theĀ Journal of Medical Ethics, have received death threats for suggesting that “what we call after-birth abortion (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled”.

Many believe such possibilities should never be raised – even within the confines of an ethics journal.
