After-birth abortion: why should the baby live? -- Giubilini and Minerva 39 (5): 261 -- Journal of Medical Ethics

Elizabeth Neatherway's insight:

This article states that newborns have no properties that would make them persons, and therefore are not actual persons, that is they are of a similar status to fetuses (potential persons). Moral considerations such as the right to life apply only to actual persons, not to potential persons and as abortion is legal up to 24 weeks, infanticide should be permissible as well, since newborns are not appreciably more persons than fetuses.

 

In my opinion after birth abortion should definitely not be allowed. Is it just an excuse to us not being able to cope with our actions? They say a newborn has still yet no moral status however it does as the human body strives to live and achieve goals. Our bodies are constantly developing and we are always learning. Is it not morally wrong to prevent someone from becoming a person capable of appreciating their own life? They argue no one is harmed as they are not yet classed as a person. For example if you ask me, or you, if you would be hurt knowing your mother would have aborted you, it would be hurtful. This is because we are people. A newborn is not a 'person', therefor no harm can be done to the individual.

 

I agree with them on only that abortion is the best option (and only option in my opinion) due to both psychological and physical reasons. If a disease had gone undetected in the pregnancy, something went wrong during delivery, social/psychological status changes etc. then still to this day one should not be able to kill the newborn. With new medicines and professions taking care of the ill is a lot more supportive, and many things can be put in place to help the parents of said newborn. If, after birth, it’s really desired (no longer wanting the newborn) then adoption should be the next option.
