Philosopher promotes “post-natal abortion”

Philosopher and ethicsist Joseph Fletcher says:

“It is reasonable to describe infanticide as post-natal abortion … Infanticide is actually a very humane thing when you are dealing with misbegotten infants. We might have to encourage it under certain conditionalities of excess population, especially when you’re dealing with defective children.”

Joseph Fletcher. “Infanticide and the Ethics of Loving Concern” Infanticide and the Value of Life. (Prometheus Books, 1978)
