I love how the thought process on this automatically either goes to "the lefties will LURVE this" or "it's an NWO plot to depopulate us all!" Ever
thought that this was the work of a couple of pro-lifers, trying to turn the tables and "show how hypocritical and nasty those pro-choicers are"? No,
couldn't be that the fact they're equating unborn babies with born ones smacks of the "personhood" philosophy. Couldn't be them trying to hold a
mirror up to the arguments for why an unborn baby is okay to kill.
And the Groningen Protocol is not some "kill whatever babies you want" law, it's a law that allows HOPELESSLY suffering children under 12 to die by
humane euthanasia (with severe ethical oversight). Not a gas chamber, not a "knock upside the head", but a choice that we should all hope to never
have to face, and therefore not leap to vilify those who have made it for *their* children suffering in pain. These are not babies with cancer,
they're babies with genetic deformations and conditions that literally make them hurt always, all the time. It's actually a pro-life law in the end,
because those who are faced with prenatal tests saying their child will be born with an incurable and possibly horribly painful condition can go ahead
with the choice to bring that child to full term and birth it, with the hope that maybe their child will be spared the suffering. If they have no
option to end their child's unbearable suffering after they're born, then the parents are more likely to abort upon many of these diagnoses, giving
the child zero chance of living.
