You do realise that what they consider "abortion" is the killing of a full-term, baby and not a foetus, do you?
And you're getting worked up about nothing as well.

A thought experiment, which is being given credence, by being published in a respected medical journal.

In your opinion. As it is me that is getting worked up, I don't consider it "nothing", so your opinion counts for nothing.

I actually find this argument interesting. ...."they just left newborns out in the elements and if they survived it was the gods will". But someone contradicts this argument, saying lower down "This is what happens when someone is without faith in God"

You do realize this "article" is most likely a propaganda tool used by the pro-life faction in order to get people whipped into a frenzy, right? Nobody is actually considering killing new born babies.

Maybe so, but at the very outside edge of the whole idea - wouldn't you at least concede that people shouldn't use that argument as a form of rhetoric in an argument against the practice of legitamate abortions? Any woman who has made the decision to have had one of those doesn't need to be guilt tripped by claptrap such as this.

In effect, the use and sensationalism of this 'article' as propaganda is wrong in a practical way, rather than the theoretical wrong of the proposed infanticide?

My point is that they're using reverse psychology on people and it is working. Obviously.

Nobody actually believes in killing newborn babies.

Exactly how do you move towards "reasonable and humane", from promoting infanticide?

I don't believe it is a pro-life article at all. You just have to read the rationale behind the arguments they put forth.

You believe they're using reverse psychology - it's your opinion, so please don't present it as fact.

One can still find the use of the article in this fashion to be in poor taste, though, irrespective of the validity of the content.

I'm not going to waste my time convincing you that you're being manipulated when you obviously enjoy it so much.
