In an article written by Shira Schoenberg on March 11, 2001, a 91-year-old American state representative told a constituent that he believes in eugenics and that the world would be better off without “defective people.”
The author asks if the representative should be espousing personal views as a state official and questions if this representatives view is shared by other Republicans. Another Representative suggests that being 91 year of age gives someone the right to say whatever they think – is that true? Does self responsibility diminish as we age?
