The Corner

Georgetown and John Haas

From readers, opposing statements, both neatly put. Ramesh? K-Lo? A little help thinking this through?

“The analogy with Mengele breaks down…when you consider that these fetuses were not killed for the purpose of medical research, which was the motive behind the Nazi medical atrocities. For Mengele and his fellows, there was more immediate moral cooperation between the scientist/physician and the moral evil. With that in mind, then, using the tissue of already-dead fetuses is no different, morally speaking, from using the corpse of a murder victim.”

“Right..and buying a stolen car stereo from a year ago doesn’t encourage thieves to continue stealing today.”
