True enough, but even if we agree some people are "better off dead" that doesn't mean it's right to arbitrarily kill them. Maybe their life will improve? Maybe their hardship will be worth the risk in the long run? Human beings have a talent for overcoming adversity and making good things come out of bad, at least if history is any indication.

That's a major reason why I'm against abortion, the death penalty and euthanasia/assisted suicide (but I promise not to muddy the waters with those oither issues, just using it as an illustrative point).
