    Yes! Absolutely! The most vulnerable population segments are children, the elderly, homeless and disabled or sick. And yes - racial minorities! White babies & elderly are more protected than black or brown. We should never throw away a life just because it’s a little banged up!!! 😿 These people need more protection. Everyone agrees with the need to protect children, and maybe those who are sick. But few people think that the elderly, the homeless and disabled deserve compassion and protection, as if they should be disposable people. Especially those with mental illness or disability. I don’t understand the logic behind these twisted values. The same baby or child we are so keen to protect will someday grow up to be an elderly person who worked hard all their lives, supported or took care of their families, paid taxes, helped to build our country in some small way. People grow old & get sick. We should never throw away a life just because it’s a little banged up!!! 😿
