Is Infanticide Wrong?

“Obviously, to go through the whole of pregnancy and labour, only to give birth to a child who one decides should not live, would be a difficult, perhaps heartbreaking, experience. For this reason many women would prefer prenatal diagnosis and abortion rather than live birth with the possibility of infanticide; but if the latter is not morally worse than the former, this would seem to be a choice that the woman herself should be allowed to make….” ~ Professor Peter Singer (Taking Life)

Doctor Gosnell was honestly perplexed by his prosecution for the murder of numerous newborns, because murdering numerous newborns was his business.

  2. There is of course a legal difference between killing a baby in the womb or killing him after birth. But is there a moral difference? And if there is no difference, does this help explain why some mothers opt to cut out the middle man (the abortionist) and make their infanticide a post-partum experience?
