"Non-Person Humans"

Elie Wiesel



“We must not see any person as an abstraction. Instead, we must see in every person a universe with its own secrets, with its own treasures, with its own sources of anguish, and with some measure of triumph.”

― Elie Wiesel



       A message to those who stand with the Peter Singers and the Mary Anne Warrens of this world and consider the severely disabled as "non-person humans",  allowing different treatment for individuals of the same interest when diminishing marginal utility is a factor.  My son is NOT a "non-person human" with a diminishing marginal utility.

  2. What a wonderful quote. We are all one - when we try to take the personhood away from someone else, I believe something in ourselves is lost as well.
