Anglicans Support Infanticide

Last weekend I blogged about the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology calling for the euthanasia of disabled infants. This weekend, the RCOG has found a new ally in support of their view. The Church of England.

The Church has submitted its views to the same independent inquiry. As reported in The Sunday Times:

The church’s submission does not say which medical conditions might justify the decision to allow babies to die. It argues that there are “strong proportionate reasons” for “overriding the presupposition that life should be maintained”.

It says it would support the withdrawal of treatment only if all reasonable alternatives had been considered, “so that the possible lethal act would only be performed with manifest reluctance”.

I suppose if the C of E supports overriding the presupposition that life should be maintained, it’s good that they want the “lethal act” to appear reluctant.

    Wolves in sheep’s clothing everywhere. Could you send me the Time’s article please? I can’t get to it without a lot of joining up jargon and money. Thanks.
