The Debrief with Created Equal
Personhood Theory vs Human Equality
Show Notes

Debrief with us to dive into personhood theory. Grace joins us this week to talk about her conversation with someone holding extreme views on what constitutes a valuable life. Even if you haven’t heard of personhood theory before, the shocking claims will sound familiar. This is not a new idea but an old one repackaged to justify killing preborn children.

Read "Practical Ethics" by Peter Singer to better understand personhood theory and where it goes if followed to its logical conclusion.
For a more in-depth look at this theory, read Scott Klusendorf's article "Peter Singer's Bold Defense of Infanticide"

Here is a helpful acronym to see the differences between born and preborn children:
Size
Level of Development
Environment
Degree of Dependency
