Liberal, Classical: Someone who believes that the rest of Mankind has something better to do. Believes that the helpless and innocent should be protected and deeply cares about the condition of Western Civilization.

The reason I brought them up is that Leo Pusateri over at Blogs For Bush has brought up a rather unpleasant subject:
Doctors are urging health regulators to consider allowing the "active euthanasia" of severely disabled newborn babies.
The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology has put forward the option of permitting mercy killings of the sickest infants to a review of medical ethics.
It says "active euthanasia" should be considered for the overall benefit of families who would otherwise suffer years of emotional and financial suffering.
Deliberate action to end infants' lives may also reduce the number of late abortions, since it would allow women the chance to decide whether their disabled child should live.
"A very disabled child can mean a disabled family. If life-shortening and deliberate interventions to kill infants were available, they might have an impact on obstetric decision-making," the college writes in a submission to the Nuffield Council on Bioethics.
In other words, these so-called doctors are calling for the murder of helpless infants.
It's kind of hard to stand up for the freedom of speech when that freedom is abused in order to call for the murder of the innocent.
We should also note the use of a qualifier as means of nullifying the meaning of a word. Thus the prefix "bio" is used to convert the field of ethics from a set of rules for living the Human mode of life into a set of excuses to destroy Human life.
I have to wonder if these so-called doctors are fully paid-up on their NSDAP dues.
