What did Peter Singer say/quote?
"Human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons." But animals are self-aware, and therefore, "the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee." ...Parents should be allowed 28 days after the birth of a severely disabled baby to decide whether to kill it. "In fact, I could have left reason I have just quickly sketched, I do not think that killing any newborn infant is morally equivalent to killing a rational and self-conscious being."

What is the relationship between reason and truth?
Reason enables us to recognize God's voice which urges us to do good and avoid what is evil while truth will lead us to the highest norm of human life. They are both urges that tell us to do good that are in each of us.
