Peter Singer Protest - Trenton

Peter Singer Protest - Trenton

  • NJ State House

ACI is collaborating with several agencies, including Liberty Resources in Philadelphia and Not Dead Yet, for a demonstration against Professor Singer in Trenton, NJ. We want Princeton University to publicly denounce recent statements by Professor Peter Singer promoting ending the lives of disabled infants through denial of health care and to take other steps to address what the activists describe as Singer’s “hate speech” toward disabled people. Governor Chris Christie has been invited to speak about Singer’s comments.

WE DEMAND THAT:

  • Princeton call for Singer's resignation and publicly denounces his comments.
  • Princeton hires a bioethicist from the disability community in a comparable position to provide a platform for views that contrast with his.
  • Princeton creates its own disability policy program to educate future leaders on an inclusive community.
     

A MESSAGE FROM DISABILITY ADVOCATE, ALAN HOLDSWORTH

Disabled kids are a burden, aren't they? Wouldn't it be great to find an ethical excuse to get rid of them? Not only are they a burden to you, but also to the health care and welfare systems of America. Maybe parents and doctors should just kill disabled babies for the greater good, which means saving money so we can all go to the beach....without our kids! After all, why should non-disabled persons living in a non-disabled world with non-disabled kids pay for those people?

The fewer disabled people there are the more resources there should be for the healthy children. Why spend money on disabled children when we could spend it on healthy ones? Don't you and the health care system have a moral responsibility to kill your kid?

This is the mantra of Peter Singer, tenured Ethics Professor at Ivy League Princeton University. See his recent statements and judge for yourself. Singer has a long history of this form of discussion in educating the future leaders of not only the U.S. but students around the world.

Meanwhile disabled advocates and family advocates have no place in the Ivy League! If nothing changes, the future is Ivy League means the future is death. If you disagree with Singer and think your disabled children's lives are worth living, then join us at the protest.
