He said it: Wesley Smith

We are at a crossroads that forces us to choose between two mutually exclusive value systems. Will we remain on the trail that leads ultimately to the full realization of the equality-of-human-life ethic and with it, the tremendous potential for the creation of a true community, or do we take a hard turn down the slippery slope toward a coarsening of our views of the afflicted, the dying, the chronically ill, the disabled, and those in pain or depression to the point where we feel they have a duty to die and get out of the way?

…Will we choose to love each other or abandon each other? …The choice is ours. So will be the society we create.
