Mr. Speaker, in 2012, two bioethicists—Dr. Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva—published an outrageous paper in the Journal of Medical Ethics, justifying the deliberate, premeditated murder of newborn babies during the first hours, days and even weeks after birth.
The ethicists said: "When circumstances occur after birth that would have justified an abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible." In other words, the same conditions that would justify the killing of a baby in utero justifies the killing of that baby even when she is born.
They—these two individuals—made it clear that because a child does not have dreams about the future at birth, that that somehow is a disqualifier to personhood.
