Libertarian Group Condemns Sarah Palin for Not Killing Disabled Baby in Abortion

Nicholas Provenzo condemns Palin for the birth of her baby Trig, who has Down syndrome.

Provenzo, who writes for the Center for the Advancement of Capitalism, not only bashes her for allowing Trig to be born, but says she should have made the so-called morally justifiable decision to kill him in an abortion.

The Center for the Advancement of Capitalism bills itself as a group "dedicated to advancing individual rights and economic freedom through Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism."

"Like many, I am troubled by the implications of Alaska governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's decision to knowingly give birth to a child disabled with Down syndrome," Provenzo writes.

"Given that Palin's decision is being celebrated in some quarters, it is crucial to reaffirm the morality of aborting a fetus diagnosed with Down syndrome (or by extension, any unborn fetus)—a freedom that anti-abortion advocates seek to deny,"

Reaffirm the morality? Killing a baby is never moral. You can't just make up your own morals. First babies, then confused senior citizens - what's next, anyone who inconveniences you? We wouldn't want you to be inconvenienced now, would we?

Palin's decision is being celebrated because so few seem to have any morals anymore.
