"Save disabled babies from pain, distress, and discomfort."

I'm curious who gets to decide what an appropriate level of "pain, distress, and discomfort" is necessary to make a baby a candidate for killing. What if the family is just poor? There's a certain level of distress and discomfort that come from that.

Actually, I know of no human that would say their life is free from "pain, distress, and discomfort." And why should it be limited to babies? If we're for killing people (that nobody can argue "aren't *really* people"), let's just decide what an acceptable "quality of life" is and have squads go pick up the "undesireables" in paddywagons.

Sheesh. Don't they teach ethics or logic in medical schools anymore?
