On this specific issue I agree with the proeuthanasia side.

Human s have artificially allowed unfit individuals to survive conditions that would ultimately kill them early in their lives. They have defied nature, and this is not without consequence.. The cost on society and taxpayers is enormous. Many of these individuals will cost millions of dollars in their lifetime in public assistance

The other issue, is that many of these disabling conditions are treatable enough, or leave enough cognitive abilities that allow this person to find a partner to have children with... Damaging genetic fitness in the offspring

Perhaps the world might be better served by euthanizing this particular, for lack of a better term, "journalist&quo t;.

Human life has come down to dollar signs and money. Life is getting cheaper and cheaper by the day..It is truly the end times. God puts challenges where they need to be and with whom they need to be. No one ever said life was easy. Are we not supposed to know the hard times to value and appreciate the good? If its inconvenient, kill it....That is what society has come to convenience and money. It's sick and its sad. We are to be vigilant and long suffering. The gift of heaven is not cheap. The gift of life has been degraded by these demons once again.

My son was born with undiagnosed Spina Bifida...I should have killed him??? Ta x me some sure go ahead...because I've got a smart totally capable son. At six years old he has overcome more than any of you have ever thought of and he did it with a smile on his face. My son will graduate, go to college, and have a great job.He is well loved by all, not pitied. He is more of a man at six that most of you will ever be


Special children are only given to special parents. God bless you and your family, Bethany. Thank you for making my day better!

The fact that you refer to the disabled as"it" shows that you have NO value for lifes true meaning.
