    No big surprise that I disagree with you on a lot of these points but none more than this one.

    I don't know how else to read this other than that you feel the government (or some other individual or organization) should have the ability to decide who has the right to exist.

    I've worked with people with all kinds of illnesses and disabilities and I've been lucky to work with many quality people and for you to suggest that some of them could be so worthless that they should never have existed is an idea that I find to be repulsive to its core.

    What type of 'serious inheritable disabilities' did you have in mind when you posted this?

    It's not really that strong of a sentiment, but more of a personal opinion. I don't desire any sort of government/individual/organizational intervention or a bill to be passed in this circumstance (nor will it ever happen), but I do look down upon it very much.

    I'm happy you feel that way. You deserve a karmic gold star, a cookie, and a pat on the back. Unfortunately, you'll likely find me repulsive then, but c'est la vie... or c'est la internet. I think you are in the minority when it comes to being "lucky" and seeing them as quality individuals. When I was in school, there were always one or two disabled, ill, or mentally retarded children in each grade. They had a terrible time as most people either ignored them, or made fun of them and made their lives a living hell. I'm sure there are exceptions to this sort of treatment, but in the majority of the cases, society treats them like a joke. I even remember certain "instructors" who were assigned to work with them making fun of them when they weren't around. It's that hidden nature within us who expresses our true feelings about certain types of people when the public isn't listening, the cameras are off, and we're around people we feel we can (supposedly) trust. You couldn't possibly argue this otherwise when you look around at the social stigma that is placed upon them. Count how many times you've seen the image about arguing on the internet being like the Special Olympics and how, if you win, you're still retarded... or how many times somebody says "that's retarded" about something.

    Personally, I think a child that doesn't have a chance of leading a normal life should not be produced. How cruel could a parent be to want that, if it was certain that their child would be born with an incurable disability? If two people who suffer from a crippling disease want to reproduce and give birth to a child who will be born the same way, is it fair to give life to a child who will suffer for the majority of their life? I don't think it is at all. It's not fair in the slightest way. In my mind, willingly subjecting a child to a life like that (if you knew in advance) is a form of child abuse to me. Nobody needs to have children that bad.

    While good samaritans like you will see them as wonderful, quality individuals, to most people they'll be seen as a waste of taxpayer money who will require a personal tutor and a lifetime commitment by the state to look after them for the rest of their lives... but again, they won't say that if they're confronted by somebody they don't know. A few have made (and will make) "contributions" to society in their lifetimes, but for the most part, their "contributions" will be limited to non-tangible ways, such as kind-hearted people like yourself who consider them a "blessing".

    I like the Political Compass for bringing to light these challenging questions which are, in many cases, rarely cut and dry answers. I'm happy to have posted the ones I feel strongly about as well. I enjoy the discussion that it brings forth. I simply believe that parents need to be informed enough of all risks and to make the right choices for themselves (NOT having them forced upon them by the government), but this is an argument on personal responsibility that's been mentioned countless times by multiple people.
