My local bishop, the Bishop of Southwark, who is also the vice-chair of the Church of England's Mission and Public Affairs Council, has argued that the high financial cost of keeping severely disabled babies alive should be a factor in deciding whether or not to give them life-saving medical treatment.

It's not often that I agree with the Church, but I think he has a point, don't you?

(I was going to make a humorous debate out of this story, but I don't have time. It's probably just as well as arguing in favour of killing babies would be an unlikely vote-winner!)

It would be very difficult to not see that as murder. Euthanasia is a very sore subject, and I tend to lean towards it being murder. There's also the slippery slope of the whole thing, in that it sets a dangerous precedence. You allow "undesirables" to be killed, who's to say that you won't be an undesirable in the future?

And don't say it's far-fetched. I submit to you Stalin, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, Hitler, Mao Tse-Tung, etc as a testament to how real it could be. ALL these acts were presented under the false pretense of doing society a favor. Executing the mentally handicapped is no different.
