Isn't "post-birth abortion" what we used to call infanticide?

A trend seen by prolife activists that frequently engage college students on campuses nationwide is the growing acceptance of post-birth abortion, or killing the infant after he or she is born, campus prolife outreach leaders tell The College Fix.

Anecdotal evidence by leaders of prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust said in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.”

“We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”

I don't care where you are in the abortion debate, this ought to seem a little scary. Granted, this is being put out by "pro-life activists," but the idea that anybody could consider 4- or 5-year-olds "not yet self-aware" is just mind-boggling. Or maybe I'm just a little uneasy because I'm getting to the age when I expect to hear, "OK, Morris, time to bow out and make room for the young and healthy" any day now.

Peter Singer, take a bow. Looks like your culture of death is catching on.
