And so apparently should CNN who used Singer as an expert on healthcare.
The network failed to mention anything about Singer's extremely controversial background as a euthanasia advocate who defines "person" in such a way as to exclude newborn infants and others -- such as elderly dementia patients -- who lack self-awareness and the ability to make plans. The network promised a response to The Examiner''s inquiries, but finally offered a "no comment" this afternoon.Singer once wrote he valued the life of an ant above his own daughter's in a New York Times op-ed a few years back.
"Killing a defective infant," Singer has written, "is not morally equivalent to killing a person. Sometimes it is not wrong at all."
I'm all for free speech but condoning these ethics is morally repugnant. The man should be ostracized, not placed on CNN. Disgusting.
