Brave -- and inhumane -- new world

The Left, struggling to come up with the worst insult they can level at Pres. Bush, routinely call him Hitler. However, as Kathryn Lopez makes clear in this chilling article, it is the Left that embraces death for those "unworthy" of living. For example:

"Killing a defective infant is not morally equivalent to killing a person. Sometimes it is not wrong at all." Peter Singer, a bioethics professor at Princeton University, penned this chillingly cold line in his book "Practical Ethics" (Cambridge University Press, 1993). *** Could Peter Singer be, or be grooming, the next Harry Haiselden? Wesley Smith, author of "A Consumer's Guide to a Brave New World," points out that Singer is a tenured professor at one of our most prestigious universities "because of his advocacy" — school administrators knew exactly who they were hiring at the time. And there he is, "preparing the intellectual ground" for infant euthanasia right in New Jersey. Smith warns, "If we invite the vampire of euthanasia into our midst, we will fall off of the same vertical cliff as has Holland."
A friend of mine, a committed right to lifer, loves to say, "I can understand how you could be for the death penalty and for abortion, or against the death penalty and against abortion, but I can't possibly understand how you can be against the death penalty and for abortion." I guess he's going to have to add infant and handicapped euthanasia to that pithy statement.
