The Smiling Tenured Face of Nihilism

'Bioethicist': OK to kill babies after they're born. 'Animal-rights' promoter asserts actual birth makes no difference

An internationally known Princeton "bioethicist" and animal-rights activist says he'd kill disabled babies if it were in the "best interests" of the family, because he sees no distinction in the child's life whether it is born or not, and the world already allows abortion.

The comments come from Peter Singer, a controversial bioethics professor, who responded to a series of questions in the UK Independent this week.

Earlier, WND reported Singer believes the next few decades will see a massive upheaval in the concept of life and rights, with only "a rump of hard-core, know-nothing religious fundamentalists" still protecting life as sacrosanct.

To the rest, it will be a commodity to be re-evaluated regularly for its worth...

Note: Having assisted this nihilist for so long who would extinguish the supposedly less than perfect in the name of 'compassion,' [$$$ there's always billions every month for wars] there can be no doubt Princeton University today stands tall as a laboratory for the ideology of a culture of death. Its post-modern pretexts---which if not stopped will end in more blood (babies, the disabled...)---is academic 'freedom' and the 'ethics' of a new Order of the world wherein the 'old' Christian ideals of love, compassion for the weakest, are transvalued according to the grand narrative which would reduce human beings to instances of ultimately meaningless DNA.

The Church vs. the Anti-Word

"A society will be judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members and among the most vulnerable are surely the unborn and the dying"--Pope John Paul II

JPII on "New threats to human life: Every individual, precisely by reason of the mystery of the Word of God who was made flesh (cf. Jn 1:14), is entrusted to the maternal care of the Church. Therefore every threat to human dignity and life must necessarily be felt in the Church's very heart; it cannot but affect her at the core of her faith in the Redemptive Incarnation of the Son of God, and engage her in her mission of proclaiming the Gospel of life in all the world and to every creature (cf. Mk 16:15).

"Today this proclamation is especially pressing because of the extraordinary increase and gravity of threats to the life of individuals and peoples, especially where life is weak and defenseless. In addition to the ancient scourges of poverty, hunger, endemic diseases, violence and war, new threats are emerging on an alarmingly vast scale.

"The Second Vatican Council, in a passage which retains all its relevance today, forcefully condemned a number of crimes and attacks against human life. Thirty years later, taking up the words of the Council and with the same forcefulness I repeat that condemnation in the name of the whole Church, certain that I am interpreting the genuine sentiment of every upright conscience:

"Whatever is opposed to life itself, such as any type of murder, genocide, abortion, euthanasia, or wilful self-destruction, whatever violates the integrity of the human person, such as mutilation, torments inflicted on body or mind, attempts to coerce the will itself; whatever insults human dignity, such as subhuman living conditions, arbitrary imprisonment, deportation, slavery, prostitution, the selling of women and children; as well as disgraceful working conditions, where people are treated as mere instruments of gain rather than as free and responsible persons; all these things and others like them are infamies indeed. They poison human society, and they do more harm to those who practise them than to those who suffer from the injury. Moreover, they are a supreme dishonour to the Creator"---Evangelium vitae, #3

Note. Another lens: The more I contemplate the Second Vatican Council vis a vis a New Order of a culture of death, the more I appreciate its prophetic emphasis in defense of all life, so critical in our time. There can be no easy reception of the Gospel, or even simple human decency, where life itself is threatened at the root and where propaganda disguised as 'science' reigns. Whatever adjustments or clarifications the Council needed for the good of the Church, this is not one of them.

  1. I wish I could say I was surprised by Singer,s comments but I am not. What is really disturbing is that he is not fired. Universities would fire proffessors for racist or otherwise politically corredt remarks but not for advocating newborn babies?! Ahh yes, there is no public outcry! That,s the real frightening part.
