I know we call the unborn victims of abortion “potential humans” to make ourselves feel better (or perhaps just to sell it better) but what do we call euthanasia victims? “Former humans? Post-human? or just “the useless?”

Maybe we should just call all of them “the better off.” Because isn’t that what we say all the time? Yes, we should kill this imperfect child because they’ll be better off. Or we should “allow” this person to die because they’ll be “better off.” (I suspect that we really mean we’re better off” without them but I digress.)

The world does not need more death at other people’s hands. It needs love. That is perhaps what we should call all the victims of our convenient death industry. The unloved.
