Whenever I saw a TV Commercial for World Vision, Feed The Children, Compassion International, etc... ? you know the ones, with the little brown children with their Precious Moments eyes, flies on their face, and bellies bloated from starvation ? I would feel a pang of sorrow for these poor unfortunates; but, no more. This week I learned that starvation is a dignified AND pain-free way to die.
So, why can?t we just allow all those starving little third-worldlings to die? After all, what kind of quality of life do they have to look forward to? Why should we take such extreme, costly and inefficient measures to keep them alive?
I would like to hear the people so anxious to do away with Terri Schiavo provide a rational explanation for keeping these children alive, or for keeping anyone alive, when they become inconvenient to somebody.
