I don’t know how progressives decided that it would be appropriate to name themselves “progressive” other then the fact that they play word games. I don’t believe there is an American alive today who cannot recognize there is nothing “progressive” about laws, upon laws to control human activity. I laugh sometimes at the whole generation of hippies from the 60’s and their complete and utter flip from “leave me alone” to I want to control you. I know that there are those including myself who would say that they are different, that those old liberals are not today’s progressives, but checking their movements since the 60’s indicates they are the same. What the hippies were doing had to do with being exempt from the morality of the culture of America and progressives are exactly the same. If they control you then their morality, not yours, not God’s is the ultimate authority. So meet the new boss, they are truly the same as the old. Moral Superiors Who Have No American Values
The modern eugenicists advocate infanticide as being no different than abortion. According to an article in The Telegraph, a team of medical ethicists linked to Oxford University maintained that “parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are ‘morally irrelevant.’ (Stephen Adams, February 29, 2012)
The Journal of Medical Ethics published an article, “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?” Francesca Minerva and Alberto Giubilini argued that babies are not “actual persons,” do not have a “moral right to life,” and parents should be allowed to kill their babies if they are disabled.
Prof. Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics labeled those readers who made death threats to the article’s authors as “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society.” Most modern humans must then be fanatics because they reject such a liberal society based on brutal values. We no longer live in Sparta. A sign of civilization is treating life with respect and awe, beginning at conception until death.
It is frightening to logically comprehend how liberals argue for population control through eugenics and advocate abortion when they themselves have already been born and their mothers did not consider them an inconvenience, an imperfect form of life, or a burden on society.
With a self-appointed “moral superiority” mandate, these warped individuals argue that “the moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life of an individual.” “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life.’
The authors believe that “after-birth abortions” should be available to parents if the newborn is disabled and the parents had no prenatal testing and did not know their fetus was not perfect, but also in cases when the newborn is not disabled. Allowing disabled children to live “might be an unbearable burden on the family and society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care.”
Therein lies the truth – under the socialized medical care system in the U.K., the state considers a burden to care for people’s imperfections, life is not sacred, and rationing of care must occur in order to save money. It is an admission of the failed medical care system that is incapable to deliver proper care to its citizens and must thus vilify those who are not perfect in order to justify getting rid of financial burdens and inconveniences in a supposedly “ethical” way. It is similar to our Obamacare labeling persons over the age of 70 as “units” and their medical care rationed based on their utility and contribution to society.
The same people who would allow pedophiles to rape your children, want to decide if they live to get that abuse. You see babies don’t stand a chance under the “progressive” movement. The movement itself is egotistical and narcissistic to the extreme. Their intent is to do the most for themselves and if they have a child well it will be the most special snowflake in the whole blizzard creating the next generations control freak. They don’t have multiples, good gracious that would take time away from their “special” lives and if they aren’t having multiples well damn it, neither are you. If Joe Biden could take away your womb to ensure a one child policy in deference to the Chinese, he would be in your house tomorrow morning with his jackbooted government employees ripping it out. When thinking extreme, there is only one conclusion in 2013 America and that is the Democrat Party.
