"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

A different topic altogether regarding the idea of abortion:

I am terrified that science will discover the means to remove homosexuality, to make sure the gay people are never born again. So what we will be facing is that the existing population will grow older and die out, trying mercilessly to clone themselves or to make gay babies in order to survive.

Abortion is a possible method, and I can only hope that women will by that time be enlightened enough to base their choices not on whether children are, to use an emotionally charged word, abnormal, but whether they feel the time and the circumstance are right to have a child.

If the permanent minorities had not reached the critical mass necessary to bring about changes in society before the means to remove them had come about, I fear that the world would have become like the world in The Giver, which describes a depressing utopian world. Jonas, the 12-year-old, was selected to be the Receiver-of-Memory, a position of high prestige and even higher burden. Jonas must remember everything, including the history that led to this state of existence where everyone is well-meaning, but unhuman.
