Francesca Minerva is a young and pretty philosopher with the courage of her convictions.

I am quite happy to announce that I would abolish infanticide as a crime.  This means I would make it legal for parents to dispose of their own babies up to the age of 12 months.

The Ancient Greeks practised it and so did the Ancient Romans.  Their civilisation did not die out as a result of this practice.  Ancient Athens declined because the Athenians fought too many wars (NeoCons please note), and Rome declined because they caught the ancient form of feminism.

This would be part of my programme of Moral Libertarian Eugenics.

Please note that all my proposals are libertarian in the sense that they repeal a law rather than pass yet another law.

Agricola:  "The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the government."
