Foetus is “living human being” but still ok to kill, says professor

8sacFrom pro-abortion, pro-infanticide professor Peter Singer:

“Yes, we can say, the foetus is a living human being, but that alone is not sufficient to show that it is wrong to end its life. After all, why- in the absence of religious beliefs about being made in the image of God, or having an immortal soul- should mere membership of the species Homo sapiens be crucial to whether the life of a being may or may not be taken?”

Peter Singer, Spectator, Sept 16, 1995

Quoted in Tamara A. Roleff Abortion: Opposing Viewpoints (San Diego, CA: Greenhaven Press, 1997) 28
