In his recent article published in the Journal of Medical Law and Bioethics, Miroslav Mitloehner argued that "it makes no sense to prolong the life of a baby born as a monster."
Vaclav Krasa, the chairman of a major organization of the disabled, called the views unacceptable, comparing them to "Nazi thinking."
Officials said Friday Mitloehner was fired from the post of director of the Institute of Social Work at Hradec Kralove University and from the Labor Ministry's scientific council.
Well, I think we know who the 'monster' is, and it's not children born with disabilities. I praise the good and quick reaction by the university and the government, but I wonder why the Journal of Medical Law and Bioethics would publish such an article in the first place?
I wonder how many people actually agree with him? I wonder if the idea will rise again in a few years and find support? Then they will decide that old people are useless to society and euthanize them.
