I used Mengele as a counter to SSS's comment about Northam's knowledge, to show that that knowledge is not necessarily relevant in moral decisions. One of the things in the proposed VA bill was to eliminate the requirement for consensus among multiple (three) doctors for late term abortions. That would allow a Mengele to make unilateral decisions that otherwise would not be (hopefully) made with separate sets of eyes.Bob78164 wrote:Bob78164 wrote: So when you compare my sister, or anyone else who had to face this heartbreaking tragedy, to Josef Mengele, you can go fuck yourself. --BobLike hell you didn't. Governor Northam described exactly the decision my sister, her husband, and her doctor had to face, and you compared him to Josef Mengele for articulating that decision. --BobBackInTex wrote:Well, its a good thing I didn't then isn't it?
It had nothing to do with what your sister went through. The VA legislation would allow for the denial of life support for babies born with Down's Syndrome, cleft palates, or any number of defects that are not life threatening but simply undesirable.
