The geneticist's latest Twitter row broke out after he responded to another user who said she would be faced with "a real ethical dilemma" if she became pregnant with a baby with Down's syndrome.How about people like Stephen Hawking? Is it moral to let them live past a certain point? Their quality of life isn't very good and eventually, they're a net burden on society. The Rickster is a smart fellow and I'm sure he knows all kinds of shrewd dudes. Maybe they could come up with a simple Excel spreadsheet for us yokels to use to determine when to off ourselves, our babies and our relatives. We wouldn't want to be doing anything immoral now.
Dawkins tweeted: "Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice."
Say, something just occurred to me. Isn't Rick getting a bit long in the tooth himself? Something to think about, D-man. Eugenics isn't something that applies to everyone else, you know. If you don't do it universally it doesn't do much good.
