This doesn't talk about Singer's efforts to feed millions of starving children throughout the world, it only seems to mention his tendencies towards favoring abortion.

False Claims

The claim that Singer has identified hemophilia as an acceptable condition for which one can euthanize an infant is patently false, and is directly denied by him in Writings on an Ethical Life. "Hemophilia is one of the misrepresented examples I was referring to. The quotation everyone uses is plucked from a section in Practical Ethics in which I was developing the implications of a particular view of utilitarianism to get people to think about the differences between that view and an alternative view. I wasn't suggesting as a matter of public policy that parents should be allowed to kill infants with hemophilia. In our society today, that would be wrong...Killing it should not be an option. I'm reverting that. --Agnapostate 19:18, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

Infanticide

You may be right about your other claims but does he really defend the idea of infanticide ?--ARamis 19:20, 27 September 2011 (EDT)
