Doug and Ryan MazzaAccording to Princeton University ethics professor Peter Singer, children with severe disabilities should not live. In an interview with New York’s AM 970, Peter Singer argued that the United States should acknowledge health-care rationing as well as the necessity of “intentionally ending the lives of severely disabled infants”—infants like Ryan. Ryan — who is blind, severely developmentally disabled, and is fed through a tube — is the son of Doug Mazza, President and COO of Joni and Friends. Though Ryan will never pursue a degree, land a job, raise a family, pay taxes or hold office … Ryan’s life demonstrates consummate purpose. He has been the impetus for thousands of wheelchairs being delivered to severely disabled children in foreign countries — children who like Ryan, ought to be euthanized, according to Singer. How are we to respond to such proposed “ethical” models of healthcare? Read Doug Mazza’s response to Peter Singer, published on The Blaze.
