Back to the original topic. What outrages me is not the fact that baby dying. That may be inevitable.
It’s about the degree of hypocrisy to cover up the obvious. It’s obvious from this and so many other cases, that we never really intent to help others. We just want to pretend we do.
If the doctor give the baby peaceful injection, that would have been much less worse. However, no. We are so hypocritical we can’t bring our self to kill babies. So what do we do? We want to say that the baby died of “natural” causes, that’s far more gruesome.
Anyone will murder a person if and only if subjective $ value of that person to me – political costs of murdering – murdering costs – “drops (such as wallet)” < 0. Babies have low sunk investment costs even from parents (at least till they enter college). Also murdering them is legal. It doesn’t have drops but I’ve heard their organ can be sold at black market. So they got killed. The same goes for cows, chickens, cats, mosquito. You don’t murder your friends and families because they’re useful for your own reproductive success.
