Free to Set the Truth

Rebecca Taylor has some withering commentary on Michael Bloomberg’s commencement address to the Johns Hopkins Medical School graduating class this year.

Every time I hear the intelligentsia start talking about bettering humanity and not letting religion or politics get in the way of science, this quote comes to mind:

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

We can’t let some humans (embryos) be killed so others may survive.  We don’t have a right to such a cure.  And, any rationalization about how embryos are not human could be extended to rule out any subclass that we find troublesome.  It’s been done before; it can be done again.

    I’ll admit it. I had to look up “withering”. And thanks!
