(CNSNews.com) - The abortion debate is unusually tense on the campus of Harvard University this semester, with abortion rights advocates allegedly tearing down pro-life posters that show a baby through the several stages of development.
The Harvard Right to Life (HRL) group has named the in utero child featured on the posters Elena. Along with the photos of the baby are facts scribbled on the signs as if a child had drawn them.
The most recent ad shows "Elena" at 8 weeks and labels distinct body parts, including the brain, skin, intestines, fingers and "my pumpin' heart".
The student organization began posting the Elena ads in mid-February, according to HRL President Meghan Grizzle. The group posts a new ad in the series every week, and Grizzle said students have to replace them "a few times a day."...
The cry will be heard from the pagans: ""NEXT STOP, THE LIBRARY!!!!
come comrades! we march to the medical section, scissors and razor blades in hand!
Here we will excise all the photos of the developing baby in all stages of developement!
and don't stop there!
We must find any pictures of newborn babies, and BURN THEM ALL! lest anyone think they are humans worthy of protection!
The great ethicist Peter Singer told Americans that no newborn should be considered a person until 30 days after birth and that the attending physician should kill some disabled babies on the spot. Five years later, his appointment as Decamp Professor of Bio-Ethics at Princeton University ignited our fires of burned baby books.
We will call our book burning SINGER's SINGERS: after his 1979 theme, ‚ÄúHuman babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons‚ÄĚ; therefore, ‚Äúthe life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.‚ÄĚ
Harvard's new bonfire of the vanities: book burning! ""
