Wesley Smith on Bioethics

The placement "test" for writing during Libby's orientation this past semester included a response to Peter Singer's thoughts on animal liberation. As absurd as it is, this is probably one of Singer's least controversial ideas. Singer is a fan of infanticide. Wesley Smith has just posted a video of a talk he (Smith) gave at Princeton a few years ago in response to that university's decision to tenure Singer. I have been a fan of Smith's blog, Second Hand Smoke, for a while, but didn't know too much about him. After watching the video, I will heartily recommend his blog to everyone. Here's the video (not for kids):

I find it interesting that you just posted this as Singer was on my mind frequently during the election. The quotes from Obama on the 'born alive' issue naturally make one think of Singer and where that train of thought leads.
