    But... then how could you have been born in order to make this thread?
    Out of Rep; but I love you for this



    Can people please stop using the term retarded? It's a derogatory term.
    This, it's making me feel uncomfortable.


    What about people who are born perfectly normal and then through an accident or whatever become disabled, should we just kill them? And how disabled are we talking? Should we kill deaf people? Or blind people?

    Exactly. A line must be drawn somewhere.

    And if we do kill disabled people, why and how the hell would that be acceptable?

    It wouldn't be. And if we aborting disabled babies becauase they are more dependent on the state than the average person, so we abort the poor as well? This person is stupid.

    This is pure murder (in the moral sense, obviously.) But worse things have been done by totalitarian governments- China killed HEALTHY babies through forcible terminations, often after viability, to keep their one child policy.
