[Ed. – One of the Left’s proudest achievement: A college-age buffoon who inadvertently makes an argument for why he himself should be eliminate.]
A student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville recently advocated “aborting” children up to two years old, citing their inability to communicate as justification.
The student made the argument during a December interview with Brenna Lewis, a field coordinator for Students for Life (SFL). In footage of the exchange, which Students for Life released this morning, the student compares two-year-old children to trees, asserting that both lack the ability to speak.
“The fact of the matter is, without communication, we have no way if knowing if you’re sentient or not,” the young man tells Lewis. “It’s not different from this tree,” he says, gesturing to one nearby. “It’s alive, but is it sentient?”
In response to this, Lewis suggests that “to compare [killing the tree] with a two-year-old is kind of tough.” Hearing this, the young man doubles-down.
“Can the two year old talk to me?” he asks. “Generally speaking, the child still has the inability to communicate. And until we determine that as such, at what point does sentience become an issue, we can’t really debate whether or not [abortion is permissible],” he argues.
