…And you thought Abortion was bad, check this out via RT.com:
The article titled “Finish it off so it doesn’t suffer,” which calls for the euthanasia of disabled newborn children, has caused public outrage in Russia and has led to fierce debates in the blogging community.
In the article under question, the author says that “the killing of the newborn is in fact the same as an abortion or super-late term abortion” and calls disabled newborns “defective blanks” and “newborn idiots”. He states that depriving disabled infants of life is “true humanism”.
The Union of Russian Journalists has accused the author of the article of breaching professional ethics.
Looks like Russia has its own Peter Singer on its hands.
