Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House unequivocally condemns the article by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva in the Journal of Medical Ethics, co-owned by the British Medical Journal Group and the Institute of Medical Ethics, which argues that the killing of newborn babies should be permissible in all cases where abortion is, and that both foetuses and newborn babies do not have the same moral status as actual persons and do not have a moral right to life; absolutely opposes any argument that suggests that infanticide could be permissible in law on any grounds and is alarmed that a process which encourages eugenics is now possible; and demands that the Government issues a statement rejecting infanticide for any reason including disability.
