"She insisted there was "nothing wrong" with people being helped to die for the sake of their loved ones or society. The 84-year-old added that she hoped people will soon be "licensed to put others down" if they are unable to look after themselves."
Be it intended or unintended, the above story is yet another example of the consequences of socialized medicine. We have seen it before. We've seen the push to have smokers be prevented from medical care in Britain. Now, we are seeing a push by some to have others "put down" to prevent them from being a burden on National Health Services.
"Singer's response came to Dublin reader Karen Meade's question: 'Would you kill a disabled baby? Yes, if that was in the best interests of the baby and of the family as a whole. Many people find this shocking, yet they support a woman's right to have an abortion,' he said."
We can also see this intense disrespect for life in Barack Obama's opposition to bills that would protect babies from being left to lay and die after their birth. Herein lies the deception that the left perpetrates everyday. Often the liberals tell us that they are the bastion of equal opportunity; that they are the arbiters of equivalence for all peoples.
Wrong. Equality is reserved for the few. The elderly, the sick, the smokers, and the disabled (90% of Down Syndrome babies are aborted) have no equality in this modern "Aryan race," so to speak. The similarities between modern, leftist eugenics and Hitler's purification plan are quite alarming when all is considered.
It is a common theme in the behavior of the left. Freedom of speech is reserved for liberals. Conservatives do not, and in their minds, should not enjoy any freedom of speech.
In their hearts of hearts, liberals do not seriously entertain this notion of equality of all people. This is becoming abundantly clear.
