UK putting sick/disabled babies on ‘death pathways’

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn shared a horrifying story on TheBlaze.com this morning from the UK: a doctor admitted that sick and disabled babies are being put on “death pathways.”

Sick children and even disabled newborn babies, are reportedly being discharged from NHS hospitals in England only to die  slowly at home or in hospices in an unfathomable manner. The innocent children are being put on controversial “death pathways,” once only thought to have involved elderly and terminally ill adult patients.

One line from the report that shocked Glenn read, “”Once only thought to have involved the elderly and terminally ill adult patients.”

He noted that this story is even more shocking for us [in the United States], because unlike England, we don’t do this to the elderly either.

The Daily Mail has more details on this tragic story:

The investigation, which will include child patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced doctors’ decisions.

Medical critics of the LCP insist it is impossible to say when a patient will die and as a result the LCP death becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. They say it is a form of euthanasia, used to clear hospital beds and save the NHS money.

The use of end of life care methods on disabled newborn babies was revealed in the doctors’ bible, the British Medical Journal.

“And what is the reasoning behind allowing, starving children to death?” Pat asked.

According to the doctor in the report, the disabled and sick children are being put on death pathways because, “They are not going to have a good quality of life,” Glenn answered.

“That is Third Reich,” Pat responded.

“It absolutely is,” Glenn said. “And who is responsible for the policies of the Third Reich?  Read their own letters.  We’ve read them on the air before.  Read the letters from the leaders of the Third Reich and the leaders of Nazi Germany and the eugenics program thanking American progressives for the ideas and the excitement level that they’ve been able to sell it to the German people.”

    We are seeing an evil greater than that of the Third Reich growing, and it is called Agenda 21. 

    This is about managing the population around the world, and the ultimate decisions of life and death by people who have no humanity, compassion or life in their souls left.

    Welcome to the future, and under Obama-care, it will happen here.

  • landofaahs

    The ultimate goal of the bloodlust liberals.  Obamacare coming folks!!!  You seniors that voted democrat deserve everything coming to you.  Down with the baby killing sodomites.

  • americanathlete

    God will hold these people accountable for killing innocent babies. It’s completely evil. How bad is it gonna get until the Savior intervenes and says enough?

  • landofaahs

    It’s only temporary. When they have killed those undesirables, they will move to the next group.  Welfare and foodstampers better hide.  So do mites die like the $.

  • landofaahs

    Amen.

    I wonder how long they allow aids patients to go on living.  That is a group who has a very high maintenance cost.

    They say Hitler was a far right loon but yet the left wanted this system of health care in our country. How blind they are. A lot of them support the killing of children because this is what Obamacare will turn into when the Progs. It is hearing things like this that makes me wonder why I ever buy into liberalism. Not only are they killing children but the elderly as well. What type of people live over the ocean that would even think this was a good idea? This is why I fight because life is too important to have it thrown away so coldly and with no compassion. If this is the ideal system for the left than we have to fight them twice as hard never backing down.

    That’s low. I wish I was going to be there with you when God asks you to defend that attitude.

  • Anonymous

    Perhaps what is REALLY low is the fact that 51% of Americans voted for a second term for the POTUS without even bothering to find out what our health care will look like in maybe five years by FIRST looking at the UK!!!!  You talk about low . . . I fear we haven’t even scratched the surface yet.  Instead of being offended because someone is speaking the truth which doesn’t jive with your version of “happily ever after”, perhaps you should take off your rose-colored glasses and face the reality of what YOU and others like YOU have shoved upon ALL of us whether we want it or not!!

    Who do YOU think will get the health care needed when ALL cannot receive it anymore, when the gov’t needs  SOMEONE to continue to work and pay taxes?  Pick ONE:  the terminally ill OR the strapping young person who is still healthy and can produce!!! BINGO . . . you get the gold star!!!! 

    Grow up and quick sucking your thumb!!!  Maybe you should better ask how you and the rest of the progressives in this country will defend YOUR attitude as you stand before GOD when it is determined that YOUR choice may very well end up killing thousands!!!  Good luck with that one . . . .

    What’s low is your willful failure to see that people with AIDS will not get the treatments that they would otherwise get under a system like the one we had 10 years ago. Unless they are politically connected, they will have no justification for the expense of their treatments, just like the do in England -now-.  In England, it is illegal for a person over a certain age to receive things like a hip replacement, even if they are able to pay for it themselves. Unless, of course, someone with the say-so gives them the OK for it.

    Got your recent post. I will comment on that later…

    In the mean time: What about population, or over-population? A planet, a continent, a nation, an island can only provide enough sustenance for only so many people. (and animal life) Of course, you might be able to lower the quality of life expectations of the citizens as population rises? NO!

    Back in my hometown there was a population of mentally ill who by State law had been released because they were not a “harm to others or themselves.” WHAT? Not a harm to themselves, maybe not pro-actively, but if they can’t perform the basic ablutions of daily life, by omission they harm themselves? Anyway, one afternoon I walked into the wrong apartment to see two of “left overs,” (as we tended to call them in our callous youth) having sex! I am not so sure that it is a good idea to allow those people to propagate generations of dependent children on top of their dependent parents? Reminds me of the proverbial “welfare queen?”

    Colorado Governor Dick Lamm once said about the elderly: “Not should they die, they have a duty to die.” Of course Lamm was criticized for that, but I understood his point. The survival of subsequent generations is incumbent on current generations to pass the torch, so to speak.

    THese are just thoughts I have about problems WE have, as a Nation. Like an addict or alcoholic, the solution starts with identifying and admitting a problem exists!

    I’m a NAZI, he’s a NAZI wouldn’t you like to be a NAZI too? Ouch!

  • crazy betty

    well, start with yourself if you’re so concerned about over population.  who are you or anyone else besides God to decide who is worthy to live or die?  you’re disgusting.  just because someone isn’t like you means they don’t deserve to live?  I think you’re a vile and evil human being and maybe people like that should be exterminated.  where does it all end?  because you don’t have the right color eyes or the right color skin… it goes on and on.  maybe everyone who doesn’t possess an extremely high IQ needs to die?  just because in your mind you think having a mental problem is a person who isn’t worthy of life, the truth is, many different kinds of people have a lot of things to contribute… some of the simplest people have the most beautiful souls and have something to show the rest of us… but you clearly wouldn’t know about such things since you are clearly godless.  you are sad, purveyor of evil.  you would have killed Forrest Gump.

    Have you ever heard that phrase or question before sometime, somewhere? Like Helmet laws, lowering the alcohol content in a sobriety test, banning cigarettes, Automatic condom applicators for your bedroom… Yikes!

    When Mayor Bloomberg of New York mandated that soda-pop not be dispensed in “Big Gulp containers–”even if it saved one life, wouldn’t it be worth it?” NO!

    Unfortunately, and judging from your post you prefer not to deal with cause and effect issues. I was very clear at the end of my post that I was merely contemplating those questions, not advocating them. Thus YOUR credibility is in question, NOT MINE.

    Life itself is too important to let it die like that. I not too worried about the population because one of these ten things will happen in the future.
    1 giant space rock hits the earth.
    2 Yellowstone goes bang.
    3 world war 3.
    4 a supernova from a star for light years away lights us up with so much radiation that no one will live.
    5 a pandemic spreads over the earth.
    6 a wondering black hole sucks us in.
    7 we end up nuking ourselves in the end.
    8 we do nothing with replacing oil.
    9 we ruin the economic system.
    10 Obama is the anti-Christ and these are the end times.
    The last one is a joke but the truth is any of these things could happen. I feel we sell ourselves sort when we don’t share compassion for those he can’t live on their own. Should they reproduce no but they should still look after. I have a family member with a disability and would wish no harm to her.

    Then you pay for them. I’m tired of parasites sucking the life out of this country. What, you think we can save all of them? You have the luxury of complaining about those who have to choose without any responsibility for your self. 70% of our health care dollars are spent in the first 2 weeks of life and the last two weeks of life. Is that the way you think it should be? The Nazis murdered productive people they didn’t like. Your slippery slope argument is lame. Help out productive people, taxpayers, students, veterans, healthy old people that have already made their contributions. They rest, no. Parasites are parasites. If you want to help them, go for it.

    uh, betty…aren’t you a bit extreme with the ‘eye color’ or ‘skin color’, or ‘IQ’? How does that make someone ‘disabled’ and unable to care for themselves, which is completely different?  And how rude for you to tell purveryor to start with him/herself – should he/she go commit suicide now?  Maybe he/she is helping by not having his/her own kids.  That is what my siblings and I have done…chose not to have children and we are over 40 (same with our cousins, they don’t have kids either).  We feel with nearly 7 billion people on earth, why contribute more?  When is enough enough?  (plus we don’t want to pass on the genes; our parents and their siblings are unstable messes).

    Look no further than the schools in the US. the idiotic obama wife has declared that children CANNOT have more that 850 calories for lunch: STUPIDITY? You bet. more than that, it is a plan to stop the children from having ANY kind of energy after school, but to become lethargic for the loss of muscle mass and strength, and stamina. Why? because kids with a lot of energy, are able to use their minds better than the kids who do not exercise their bodies. MENS SANA EN CORPORE SANO. The Greeks and the Romans knew it. The stupid REGRESSIVES( do less with more), know it also, but cannot allow the little people to learn too much, for they would realize that the democRATS want to control the slaves, useless slaves they have NOT educated, and they have enslaved with their distributions of entitlements. The slaves will learn to deal with less. Then be grateful of the pittance distributed, with great restrictions, to the obeying masses. Oh how good is Marx and his marxism. Aint it?

    I have also heard the Brit NHS ‘ new director has promulgated that patients can no longer personally make appointment with physicians, but must first go online, signup with reasons why, and then wait in queue IF their needs are deemed reasonable by THE PANELS.

    After working 34 years in the medical field, I have personally observed the government pressure exerted on the private physicians ability to treat patients. In 2010 I was in a meeting that was sponsered by the white house to advise physicians of the upcoming mandates on the new regulations that would be coming with Obamacare. The main objective is to ”lower cost” by rationing visits for expensive medical conditions. The doctors in that room were told that the first 3 conditions will be Diabetes,High Blood Pressure, and High Cholesterol. The patients will be restricted to 3 visits per year, all in the name of controlling costs. Along with this there will be a restriction of how many prescriptions you can have per month(currently some medicaid plans limit this to 3 prescriptions per month)  These measures will cut care as well as longevity and quality of life.
     At the end of the meeting it was said that the next expensive item that would be addressed is newborn babies with special needs….so it appears they are following the UK policies for social medicine. Anything/anyone that is “expensive” will be subject to the government panel that decides what they deem “worth it”
    This is going on as we speak…..and moving towards implementation. In addition they are cutting the reimbursement for the providers and now their ability to treat patients, and make a living are being threatened. There will be no “free” healthcare and now we are losing the best healthcare system in the world. There will be no incentive for the best and brightest to become physicians and we will suffer the consequences. I wonder if the people who voted for this will  realize what they have voted for and done to our country

    Not only the cost of their care, but so many of them get promiscuous joy from infecting others that they have associations, and a slick glossy magazine called Bareback. I first heard of this while attending to my mother recovering from a stroke on the in-hospital TV network. Now THAT was a shock!

    My mother could not get a hip replacement in Canada, even if she paid for it herself.  She lived for years with the pain. Such are the joys of a single payer system like we have and they WILL have in the US.

     I think it’s more about not not going to extreme measures to support/perpetuate a life that otherwise would not have made it by nature (or by Gods hand, so to speak?). The advances that medical science has made over the past century have helped  create the population  explosion, which if continued at the current rate, will see the human population outpace the earth’s ability to support it in the not too distant future. China’s solution was to limit each married couple to producing just one child (wow that would screw up our Social Security system!).

    I do not condone the method the UK uses, whereby a person is made to die of dehydration and starvation. This is a most cruel way to  die, and certainly against the  Hippocratic Oath! Yes, the UK and certainly Obamacare interferes with the Hippocratic Oath sworn to by all Physicians, to the point of forcing them to violate their Oath!

    An excerpt of the classical version of the Hippocratic Oath:

    “I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and
    all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill
    according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:

    I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according
    to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.

    I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it,
    nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give
    to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my
    life and my art.

    I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work.

    Excerpt from the Modern Version:

    I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

    I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are
    required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic
    nihilism.

    I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science,
    and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s
    knife or the chemist’s drug.

    I will not be ashamed to say “I know not,” nor will I fail to
    call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a
    patient’s recovery.

    I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are
    not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I
    tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a
    life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life;
    this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and
    awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

    I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous
    growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s
    family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related
    problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

    I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

    I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special
    obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body
    as well as the infirm.

    This is murder, & allowing the murdering of your own innocent people is treason.
    our government is trying to push for this & it clearly goes against the constitution which says.
    “we hold these truths to be self – evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
    no person shall be deprived of these rights without due process of law.
    These Babies have done no wrong & yet they are being murdered, this is no different than abortion except after being born.
    The Elderly We need keep around also as long as We can because We can learn a lot from them, they have the right to enjoy life as long as God allows for them to be here. 
    Who are these people who think they can play God?
    God gave us the ability to create life, Not the right to end another Human being’s.
    It is His decision when a person should die, not ours. ( unless We know our own lives are in danger, or another persons as well)

    I don’t know if you read these or not but this is already happening in the U.S. only now you can fight it in court but when the Affordable Health Care Act goes into effect one will not be able to fight it. I went through this with my mother who was a vibrant lady who road a Harley Davidson motorcycle and loved to go listen to Jazz. She went into the hospital one night because she was dizzy and was diagnosed within two weeks with Endocarditis. The “county” hospital refused to do a surgery on her that would have corrected this problem but without it she woud die. They cited her age, that she had diabetes (she only took a pill she didn’t even need injections), and that she was on dialysis. She had no problems on any of it and lead a very productive life until that one day she entered the hospital and they chose not to give her any treatment. She ended up in a coma. The hospital said she was “brain dead” repeatedly but thank god I am both a legal and medical professional and challenged it. They continued to attempt to discontinue all treatment and then called in an “ethics committee” in laymens terms that is what people are calling the death panels but the professional and correct label is ethics committees who have NO oversight. I challenged them and won and my mother woke up out of the coma five months later. All the cost could have been prevented by giving her the simple surgical procedure and she would have bee out of the hospital within two and a half weeks. Ethics committee’s are who will make these decisions only now without allowing the families to challenge it because it will be the law of the land. I have twenty years in pathology and clinical laboratory and fourteen years in the legal/congressional field. I am also a public figure. Please do a show on ethics commitees and bring attention to it. I would be more than happy, as a professional, to explain how these committee’s currently work.
    Here is a video that explained some of what I was describing that took place with my mother and how serious her health declined without their care simply because of her age and “comorbidities.” The ethics committee claimed her life would not be a good “quality of life” and the began citing medical futility. Very scary stuff.
    Sadly, I am now awaiting a transplant and my life is hanging in the balance.
    Here is the link to the video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CsDEwwnIdU

    OK, point taken,

    But please remember, I am philosopher, I dabble in the ethereal as well as questions un-asked. Sometimes those questions can make one uncomfortable?

    My response is that man’s intellect, his opposable thumbs and his ability to communicate have placed him somewhat beyond the grasp of evolution? In fact, a large portion of human resources are devoted to making man impervious to nature’s law?

    I will admit to being in favor of some form of euthanasia, properly regulated and policed I see no problem with such. My point is that “artificial life support” for the terminally ill is an example of what i mentioned above–placing man beyond the grasp of evolution…

    I appreciate your retort: “Natural selection tends to discard imperfect genes.” Furthermore, I don’t see that concept as antithetical to God’s laws as I have written and argued that evolution is how God creates, or makes change to his infinite universe?

    Question: Could it be that “Mother Earth” has already reached a point of over-population and in our blind conceit, we have failed recognize such? Easter Island’s inhabitants once combined religious proclivity with non-viable ecologic practice, thus resulting in their own demise…

    Thank you

    I am just an astronomer that studies too much about this type of stuff. There are millions of things in space that can come here and kill you I didn’t even mention space rocks carrying super viruses or quarks which have a nasty little habit of converting matter into soup. There are millions of things that can get us before population growth kicks in. What I wonder is why no one got what you are doing here to begin with?

    Interesting,

    Your premise is an “IF” the world would only do this, “THEN” the world could do that? (Note: “World,” in this instance connotes both the earth and mankind) Ergo, the “world” hasn’t done “this” and I am not sure anyone could make the case that the human condition has been improved, appreciably in the last 2000 years. For every medical breakthrough there seems to be more people born somewhere to negate the affect of that discovery. Hence the misery index, so to speak, climbs by way of increased population? (The Biblical Horseman of the Apocalypse, continue to ride, boldly!)

    Also, “God gave man dominion over the earth.” Philosophically, is that Biblical passage a granting of complete consumption, or one of stewardship? My point is that animals too have fundamental rights. They are NOT the same rights as humans, but rights nonetheless. For instance an animal taken for human sustenance has a “fundamental right” to suffer as little as possible! Moreover, the animal kingdom has a fundamental right to exist and perpetuate the respective species. Or is extermination a part of “natural selection?” (Does the capacity to “exterminate,” place man above natures law?)

    In conclusion: Nature is a very viable barometer to the earths and man’s health. As nature succumbs (by man’s hand) so too does man. In essence, we risk being the engine of our own demise?

    (NOTE: This is a philosophical musing, not an argument for or against global warming)

    Thank you for your respectful replies.

    Top-o-the morning, I hope you don’t get another headache? LOL

    I’d like add one more comment on the subject: IF, America, or any country for that matter has trouble “creating” enough jobs, is that an indicator of too many applicants, or not enough jobs? Is the glass half full, or half empty?

    As you are a scientist, you should agree to the existence of a theoretical formula to determine the optimal population for a given planet, continent, nation, etc.? Hence, when does a species by way of overpopulation become parasitic?

    For instance, were I to assign a political science/sociology class to create two theoretical nation/islands called Square and Circle. Each nation would have certain resources–minerals, farm land, fresh water, and so on. I could add or detract variables such as drought, monsoon, and yes, population, even disease. The computer would make this study much easier than would have been 50 years ago, but the study would be enlightening and disturbing as truth has the tendency to be, at times?

    (NOTE:There is an old episode of Star Trek about a planet that has become over-populated that is very prescient and “disturbing.”)

     In the UK women with breast cancer are given little or no care by their drs. and some women were not even told they had cancer untill it was too late for any treatments.
    Do you think their politicians and the royals are under these same mandates??  Of course not and so it will be here. 
    The senate and congress plus others in office are not under the ob-care and their many friends, and contributors of the political machines in DC were given waivers.  You can probably think of thousands of others that are or will be “entitled” to the best of care possible.

    Sadly it is possible. Too young or too old, you are at the mercy of the society you live in. We would not have had to worry if we had not kicked God out of our lives so long ago.

    Please! this is not happening. I remember seven months ago when you addressed a Dr. Phil show where a mother wanted to kill her disabled sons and the shock that I was watching a show in America. I will never forget the show where Glen addressed what happened in Germany around the time of WWII. The reasoning is inhumane. The people behind this have had heartechtomys! All for money and hospital beds? When did money and beds become more important than sacred human life? 
    I have a disabled grandson that will never walk or talk. He has blessed our family just by
    “being” We are better a better family because of his presence in our family. When we loose our humanity… we have lost everything. Look at how a society treats it weak (children and elderly) and you will see the heart of their culture.

    I watch a lot of Star Trek. I feel we need to do one of two things to solve this problem. One we stop having children or two we branch out star ward. We need to change places like Mars or the moon to suit our needs as a people. I know the green people here on earth hate the idea but it is that or no sex.

    Go to: SarahPac and check out her story on death panels here in the US ~ Funny how Palin always seams to be right on! ~ When you think about it, she is really one classy lady…Look at her record as Gov and small town Mayor, at one point after two years as Gov her approval rating was over 90%, a record for the whole damn country, no other Gov has ever had an approval rating over, think it was, 74% ~ Her debate with the Joker, Biden set a record for the most watched ever, about 84 million viewers tuned in, including PBS……..It’s still on C_Span..

    Had she ran instead of Romney, Obama and Biden would be out on their ass..~ Would love to see her run 2016, she would have my support and money, I still send her Pac money and will as long as she wants it..

    This GOP convention was a damn waist of money and time ~ Christie and Santorum, two piece’s of damn garbage…Santorum is a accident waiting to happen and Christie the me, me, me jerk-off…………Christie followed Ann Romney and did not mention her once, did not say what a good speech she gave………..He used the word, Me, think it was about 33 times…
    After the convention, there was not even a 1 point jump in the polls ~
    After Sarah Palin at the 2008 GOP conv there was a 8 point jump in the polls…
    Anyone with 1/2 a damn brain would have had Palin and Allen West speak this time….
    West would have won his reelection in Florida had he spoke at the conv……..
    Palin, single handily won the House for the Republicans in 2010 ~ Her success rate was over 78% win on her endorsements ……She traveled the whole damn country for the her candidates..

    I guess that is my point?

    The Human species has the intellectual capacity to “have dominion over the earth,” including himself? Is man a part of nature, or apart from nature? If the former is applied, mankind must be aware of his impact on mother earth. Obviously, this could/should mean that man be aware of his population on the planet.

    Unfortunately, there will be readers who assume I referring to death camps and forced sterilization. Perhaps simple common sense might be in order? That, and not forcing others to support someone else’s children!

    Which is the greater immorality: Being forced to support another person, or not being willing to support another person? Giving “alms” to the poor should be voluntary!

    I was just speculating. As for the others don’t let them get to you I understand your point from day one. It just shocking we live in a time where no one wants to take responsibility for the own actions. My nephew so called father for instance wants nothing to do with him and we all warned my sister about him but she was in love so I can understand your point. What can we do when not many people want to live with responsibility? This is a puzzle with the human race that I just don’t get. Sooner or later we have to face reality of a problem whether it is this one or the national debt that Obama wants to add more to.

    OK, I will indulge you…

    I have engaged in some rather, precarious and dangerous endeavors in my life. A number of my compatriots were grievously injured to the point that the quality of their lives was such that they were/are rendered completely dependent, or partially dependent on others in some rather unpleasant ways…

    I quit, before that happened to me! (but not before being taken away in helicopter at least once!)

    IF, and only IF, I was injured or sick to the point of complete infirmity, I would want the choice and the compassion to choose euthanasia. (mercy killing) I sincerely hope that answers your question?

    As for my question, it was an odd reference to a famous legal case, (Roe v. Wade) that somehow seemed relevant…

    Thank you for your measured, well-thought-out reply. My gastrointestinal tract is functioning quite well, thank you. Glad that you thought enough about my welfare, and my state of health to comment on it. :)

    My point : “Stephen Hawking Lives”… While many  people may only look at the outward physical appearance and condition of Stephen Hawking, and worry about what kind of “quality of life” that he may have, his MIND is very much alive and active. Thank you very much.

     I am profoundly grateful that he is alive to contribute to humankind’s understanding of the working of the universe, and I look past his disability and infirmity. His contribution to civilization is profound.

    When I was in Cambridge, England (my husband was giving a seminar at Churchill College on molecular genetics), I saw Dr. Hawking on King’s Parade.

    He was in a motorized wheelchair, (which is controlled by a mouth apparatus). He was accompanied by a caregiver , as Dr. Hawking navigated the cobblestone road..

     Seeing him  made me realize,( in a very profound way) that  a man or woman or chid is MORE than their  body. 

    As a civilization, we need to respect all human life. Why ? For a selfish and self-serving reason > Because the solution to many of our problems (i.e. the cure for cancer; the discovery of a new way to generate energy; how to be better stewards of the earth’s resources etc.) may be discovered by a human being with a MUCH LESS than PERFECT body. 

    Peace.

    Sounds like you had profound, spiritual and philosophical experience? Furthermore, that you continue to cogitate on the implications, is commendable. My intent, as a philosopher, is to provoke further thought and apparently I succeeded.

    I am curious, but not surprised as to why you extrapolated my words into a suggestion for mass murder? I simply alluded to the possibility that our planet, or any planet that may contain intelligent, sapient life must have a maximum capacity, so to speak. That human beings should have the wherewithal to determine a proper population balance with the resources provided by mother earth. That we can address the issue before it becomes a problem, or, like we tend to do so often–wait until its a crisis?

    Perhaps Stephen Hawking will be the one to solve this dilemma…
