Yes, this is very much why I am still dubious of legal euthanasia - not because I don't think people should choose when to end their lives, but because of the pressure put on less able people to not be a burden, and because of the automatic devaluing of life that is not perfectly able, healthy and independent.

Pauline Hanson (the Australian right-wing racist politician) recently had a public rant about how disabled kids shouldn't be in mainstream education because they're holding everyone else back. Meanwhile, the government voted through a huge education budget and, to satisfy various wealthy pressure groups, gave extra millions to the Catholic education sector, and kept most funding in place for wealthy private schools. It's not the kids who are a problem, it's the low valuation of their education and the staff to help them.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
