A University of Knoxville, Tenn., student claims it is okay to kill young children, because they cannot communicate like adults do, the pro-choice college male said in a video released Thursday.
The unnamed student made a case for children infanticide up to two years old. Students for Life’s Appalachian Regional Coordinator Brenna Lewis recorded the December encounter with the student.
“Without communication, we have no way of knowing if you’re sentient or not,” said the student, referring to killing young children. “It’s no different than this tree. It’s alive. But is it sentient?”
“Can the two year old talk to me?” he added. “Generally speaking, the child still has the inability to communicate.”
“The idea that someone could support infanticide is incredibly disturbing,” Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Yet, it reflects the kinds of attitudes our staff members and students can face on a daily basis on high school and college campuses.”
“When countries such as Iceland normalize the deliberate killing of babies with Down syndrome or states like California want to normalize abortion drugs on campuses, we should not be surprised when students display a wanton disregard for human life,” she added.
