Being born at a time like ours

Here's a must-read. It even provides a bit of historical data to better understand just why and how some people think the way they do -- and assume (many of them with sincere motivations, I like to think) that they are doing everybody else a favor.

Whose Life Is It? A Well-Born Misconception
by Roberto Rivera

A recent headline in the Washington Post said everything you needed to know about the story that followed:

"New Test Enables Doctors to Target Defectives."

Well, it didn't really say that but it should have, and the fact that neither the Post nor we can bring ourselves to put it that way says a great deal about us -- none of it good.
