MarMema, thanks your posts. I was unaware of this (happened in '93!) and am appalled and saddened. Compare to Terri Schiavo: a parent or guardian determines that their child or ward has (HAS to have, she's not like me!) a poor 'quality of life', and must (of course!) not want to live 'that way'.
I also note similarity in the general public, the left's, and the CCLU (Canadian CLU) response in MarMema's second link: Tracy Latimer, Disability Rights and the Left.
As sionnsar said, this is the descent: evil is being called good, and good (the prosecution and punishment of a MURDERER) is evil.
