Should the mentally handicapped be allowed to live?

Tin_Hat
reasonablereason

Mentally handicapped people do not do anything positive for us, they do not pass on good genes for future generations, they do not innovate and are not capable of deep, meaningful thought, (or at least cannot express it and change anything) in every situation they would be a burden and have their lives lived for them by others....
