My God...I can't even form words about this. It reads like the worst kind of twisted amoral logic. Basically, they're claiming that the sole criteria for the right to life is that a person be old enough to recognize what death is, and to prefer to remain alive.

Is there a pit in hell deep enough for these "ethicists?"

Actually, this is good in the sense that they acknowledge that a newborn and a fetus are morally equivalent, thus, any non evil person must concede that a fetus has the same rights as a newborn, thus abortion is evil.

In addition, isn't this one of the first questions asked when debating abortion. Why stop at birth? Where do you draw the line?

Now pushing the line further out, one can only assume that we should kill people that actually are a burden to society (say the handicapped). At some point it will become required to abort these children unless you can demonstrate your ability financially to care for them (at a level the state deems appropriate).

Only a few years ago, I would have thought this kind of thing was ridiculous, but now, it could actually happen. It makes me sad and afraid.

The Euthanasia vans with into service this week in the Netherlands. It's closer than you think.
