This weekend, the pro-abortion group Women on Waves used a drone to deliver several doses of doctor-prescribed abortion drugs illegally to women in Poland, where abortion access is limited. The group, which travels the world delivering abortion drugs to restricted areas, flew the unmanned drone from a border-town in Germany. They were arrested by police shortly after. In Poland, abortion is mostly limited to cases of incest, rape or when the mother’s life is medically threatened, but the number of illegal abortions is thought to be very high. Contraceptives are also not easily available to most people in the country. After the drone dropped the medication, two women took it to end their pregnancies. Discuss
A pair of British scientists have advocated for "post-birth abortions," which is just what it sounds like: terminating a baby after he or she is born. Pro-life proponents have loudly decried the paper advocating for the procedure, and there hasn't yet been a public response from pro-choice groups, likely because "post-birth abortion" is literally the stupidest, most evil thing ever ...
Two Oxford bioethicists caused an outcry amongpro-lifers when they argued that “after-birth abortion” — killing anewborn baby — is morally sound and should be made legal.
Alberto Giubilini from the University of Milan and Francesca Minerva from Melbourne University wrote in the Journal of Medical Ethics that fetuses and newborns “do not have the same moral status as actual persons.”
The pair argue say thatkilling a baby should be “permissible in all cases where abortion is,including cases where the newborn is not disabled,” adding that “thefact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant.”
