Peter Saunders
Is it wrong to kill disabled people if caring for them costs more than identifying and destroying them? About 90 percent of all babies with Down Syndrome detected before birth are terminated. There is no doubt that providing life-time support for people with Down Syndrome can be costly in emotional and economic terms - but many families will testify that there are great rewards too and that they have much to teach us. So what does this tell us about our attitudes to people with Down Syndrome? Why are we not up in arms against these doctors who seem to value these people's lives so cheaply?

Douglas P. McManaman
Synopsis: The person who lacks integrity comes across to a variety of people in a variety of ways, because he is not one within himself. To some people he's a religious man, to others he's a liar; to some he's generous and kind, to others he might be vindictive and ruthless; in front of liberals he talks like a liberal, but in the presence of conservatives, he talks like a conservative; to that man he's a friend, but in the presence of certain others, he's indifferent to that man, or possibly even adverse.
