Protest Called Against Euthanasia ExtremistTopics: Announcements, Euthanasia
A group of pro-life individuals and disability proponents plan to protest a Dr. Peter Singer speaking event tonight at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL. According to group organizer Pamela Hennessy (ForEthics):
Singer promotes euthanisation and infanticide of disabled and ailing persons. Has called them 'unpersons' and 'nonpersons'. He is an absolute threat to those amongst us who deal with physical and neurological challenges because he promotes a strong bigotry against those who may not be able to do for themselves.Singer's views on killing newborn's are particularly notorious and based upon his utilitarian view of ethics theory, which promotes decisions that would "maximize the amount of happiness for the greatest number of people."
WorldNetDaily today reports on comments Singer made to a series of questions reported in the UK Independent. "Would you kill a disabled baby?" he was asked.
"Yes, if that was in the best interests of the baby and of the family as a whole. Many people find this shocking, yet they support a woman's right to have an abortion," he said.The group protesting Singers asks for others to join them between 6.30 and 7.00 tonight outside the Fox Center at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL. .
