[Re: "Building a Better Baby," October 22]

Genocide and slaughter!

Sorry! The freedom to choose is not a cherished value; instead it is the ultimate perpetuation of irreverence for helpless, sentient beings. Abortion, slaughterhouses, genetic engineering, and animal genocide are all heinous ramifications of brazen, unabated secular humanism. We are assuming the power of Providence through selectively exterminating creatures and humans not conducive to our supremacy worldview. Cloning, reproductive technology, infanticide, and the daily decimation of myriad species are indicative of a mentality invoking intellectual progress as an excuse to overlook moral impoverishment responsible for incessant carnage.
