Why children need to be loved

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

I have argued elsewhere that children have a moral right to be loved. Mhairi Cowden challenges my arguments. Among other things, Cowden believes that children do not need to be loved. In this paper, I explain why Cowdens arguments fail and offer additional evidence for why children need to be loved.
