MSNBC says life begins whenever parents decide it does, including years after childbirth

(NaturalNews) It's easy to think that the most outrageous things said by some of today's "intellectuals," some of whom pretend to be cable news program hosts, are merely for shock effect, but when they keep saying them you begin to realize their not kidding - they really believe what they're saying.

Take MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, who recently donned a pair of tampons as earrings, in protest of a decision by the Texas Legislature earlier this month to confiscate any items that could be hurled at lawmakers debating new restrictions and regulations for abortion clinics in the state.

Indeed, Harris-Perry seems obsessed with abortion, because her latest incomprehensible position on the issue can only be defined as favoring infanticide - the murder of infant children.

In addressing the age-old question of when life actually begins (Christians say at the moment of conception, scientists say about three weeks later) Harris-Perry recently settled the matter during one of her scarcely-watched programs: Whenever parents "decide" it does.

When does life begin? That depends...

Per Breitbart News:

Practically since the beginning of the national abortion debate the most fought over question between the pro-abortion and pro-life sides is just when does life begin? In an attempt to avoid the arbitrary, most try to utilize some sort of scientific reasoning to decide when life is life. The pro-life side says life begins as soon as the egg is fertilized while the pro-abortion side often contends that life isn't life until it is self-sustaining, meaning a fetus isn't "life" until it can survive outside the womb.

But here comes extreme left-winger Harris-Perry to offer the most arbitrary criteria of all: whenever anyone feels like life begins, then that is "life."


Outrageous - just for the sake of being outrageous? I don't think so. I think she really believes what she says on the matter.

"When does life begin? I submit the answer depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents. A powerful feeling--but not science," she said on her July 21 show.

So in other words, according to college professor Harris-Perry, deciding when life can begin - particularly the life of the most vulnerable in our society, an infant child - is an arbitrary decision based on whims or other provisional criteria. Consider the implications of that concept for a moment.

As Breitbart News points out, Father John Zuhlsdorf, a Catholic priest, notes that basing the criteria for when "life" is and is not, based on someone's feelings, that opens a Pandora's Box. Anyone, at any time, can then be deemed unworthy of life.

What's more, Harris-Perry isn't the only one on the political progressive Left who feels perfectly at home murdering babies after they've been born.

Babies are less valuable than chimps and have no right to exist

For years Princeton prof Peter Singer has said infants can be killed up to 30 days after birth because they are not "self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist," therefore, "they are not persons." As such, "the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee."

Perhaps Singer got his views from Michael Tooley, a "philosopher." As early as 1972 he declared that a human being "possess[es] a serious right to life only if it possesses the concept of a self as a continuing subject of experiences and other mental states, and believes that it is itself such a continuing entity." Infants, of course, haven't experienced much of anything except birth.

Then there is philosophy professor Jeffrey Reiman. He believes that, unlike mature human beings, infants do not "possess in their own right a property that makes it wrong to kill them." And he fervently holds that infants are not persons with a right to life and that "there will be permissible exceptions to the rule against killing infants that will not apply to the rule against killing adults and children."

Shock effect? Not hardly; these monsters actually believe the BS they are peddling.

I've often wondered if people like Harris-Perry, Reiman, Tooley, et al, feel fortunate that their own parents didn't believe the same things they do about newborn children. Somehow I doubt they see the irony.
