There is a campaign underway to make infanticide seem normal and a legitimate medical procedure. The latest example is this puff piece in the New York Times (registration may be required), non-judgmentally “profiling” a doctor who kills disabled babies in the Netherlands. This follows hard on the heels of the Los Angeles Times publishing a pro-infanticide column by “ethics expert,” the notorious Peter Singer of Princeton, and the New England Journal of Medicine publishing an apologia for killing babies written by two Dutch infanticide doctors. I’ll try and expound on this disturbing trend sometime next week.
We launched the First Things 2023 Year-End Campaign to keep articles like the one you just read free of charge to everyone.
Measured in dollars and cents, this doesn't make sense. But consider who is able to read First Things: pastors and priests, college students and professors, young professionals and families. Last year, we had more than three million unique readers on firstthings.com.
Informing and inspiring these people is why First Things doesn't only think in terms of dollars and cents. And it's why we urgently need your year-end support.
Will you give today?
