    do you agree that we should kill retarded babies, then?

    generally

    i'm just ascertaining the boundaries of your general agreement, here.

    I think that the benefits of having a general ethical and legal rule not to kill homo sapiens after birth vastly outweigh the benefits of infanticide, in that "don't kill homo sapiens after birth" is a pretty good line in the sand, and that if we allow an exception for infanticide based on their intelligence or awareness then we open ourselves up to standards creep.

    anyway

    For a traditional English sonnet, IIRC, it's fourteen lines each consisting of ten syllables, written in iambic pentameter (da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM). The rhyming scheme is ABAB CDCD EFEF GG, so the first and third lines rhyme, the second and fourth, and so on until the thirteenth and fourteenth lines which rhyme with each other. That's pretty much it, I think.

    Nonetheless I am completely incapable of using it.

    I think that if we allow an exception to the general rule "don't kill homo sapiens" it needs to have a clear boundary with limited potential for abuse or misinterpretation.

    "Infants aren't really humans because they're not smart enough" isn't remotely a clear enough boundary.

    If infants aren't really humans then killing them is not an exception of that general rule

    but that's stupid

    the rule ought to be infants are humans that it's okay to kill

    Part of the problem here is one of definition. "Retardation" of infants is something of a meaningless concept, since 'retardation' means that mental development has not kept pace with chronological age.

    But I know that what he really means is 'infants who are born with diseases that cause severe mental retardation.' Of course, that brings up the questions - how do you know the mental retardation is going to be severe; how do you know how severe it is going to be; what is the benefit of killing it?

    If a baby is born with morbid hydrocephalus - where literally it's entire cerebrum doesn't develop and it just has fluid where that part of the brain would be - then there is for all intents and purposes zero chance that baby will ever show anything remotely approximating human thought. As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing wrong with letting that baby die.

    But I don't trust us to enforce that standard appropriately.
