Chinese rubbish collector saved and raised thirty abandoned babies

Daily Mail: “A woman has been hailed a hero after details of her astonishing work with abandoned children has emerged.

Lou Xiaoying, now 88 and suffering from kidney failure, found and raised more than 30 abandoned Chinese babies from the streets of Jinhua, in the eastern Zhejiang province where she managed to make a living by recycling rubbish.

She and her late husband Li Zin, who died 17 years ago, kept four of the children and passed the others onto friends and family to start new lives.”

Abortion debate entering new arenas

Rep. Chris Smith: “Why do so many who claim to be proponents of human rights systematically dehumanize and exclude the weakest and most vulnerable human beings from legal protection? Why the modern-day surge in prejudice and ugly bias against unborn children and newborns? Why the policy of exclusion, rather than inclusion? Why is lethal violence against children – abortion and premeditated killing of newborn infants – marketed and sold as benign, progressive, enlightened and compassionate?”

Academics' defense of infanticide supported by pro-choice logic

CNA: “Oklahoma University Law Professor Michael Scaperlanda concurred with Professor George and Dr. Bellieni. He told CNA on Feb. 29 that abortion supporters lacked any persuasive, well-grounded reason for rejecting infanticide.

He agreed that Minerva and Giubilini “are following the ‘pro-choice’ logic in extending this to infanticide. It turns out that, post-conception, there really is no logical line when somebody is ‘a person’ or ‘not a person.’”

Academics argue for Infanticide

The Telegraph: “The authors therefore concluded that “what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled”.

They also argued that parents should be able to have the baby killed if it turned out to be disabled without their knowing before birth, for example citing that “only the 64 per cent of Down’s syndrome cases” in Europe are diagnosed by prenatal testing.”
