The worship of death has expanded this week. While those of us who read Proverbs 8 in a Christian context note that the chapter ends stating that those who do not worship Jesus will worship death, it isn't always clear how this is done. The Telegraph tells us with a headline to an appalling article:

Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say
Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending their lives is no different to abortion, a group of medical ethicists linked to Oxford University has argued.

Hilariously, they seem to be upset with the threats to their lives that have followed from publication of these repellant views. Objectivity would remind them that it is not so different from the killing that they recommend. But we have known for some time that medical ethics is the haunt of depraved scoffers, so it's not that surprising.

Update Now that Planned Parenthood has come out in support of killing babies so their body parts can be sold to buy a Lamborghini, I recognize where I live. I don't like Carthage, despite its acclaimed government and ocean girdling power.

Anyone calling themselves a medical ethicist who publicly advocates what these people are advocating should IMO be sacked immediately. What they are advocating for is the decriminalisation of child murder, which even in a society which allows late-term abortion is (or should be) beyond the pale.
