The Law Says: Kill The Child

by Akiva at Mystical Paths

Life of Rubin has up an incredibly tragic story
about a Jewish family in Florida who's young child drowned. The horror of the story is this, the child is alive but on life support. Apparently Florida law says, "Several doctors have declared the little one brain dead, and claim that, by Florida law, the girl has to be taken off life support.

So apparently in Florida, there's a law that says if doctors feel your brain isn't functioning well enough to support 'quality-of-life', then you must be killed. Religious belief doesn't matter, ability to pay (or not) doesn't matter. All that matters is doctor declaration. (I'll grant it's a council of doctors and hospital 'ethicists'.)

Is eugenics making a return?
