    Ending the life of a two year old child (no future = no moral status) who doesn't meet someone's (mom's? the state's? yours?) behavioral expectation (see post #8) is murder in anyone's book. Present company excepted.

    I envision a future when psychopathy and other undesirable traits can be determined by genetic testing.

    You aren't the first to envision such a future. It doesn't alter the fact pointed out in post #11.

    Are you saying that today's "luck of the draw, keep them all" is the best way?

    I'm saying you expressed what's in your heart.

    If so it's because I run on logic, not emotion or superstition.
