Whether or not, eugenics and social darwinism is considered a perversion of Darwinist ideas today, then they were well within the norm. The Americans had their Tuskegee experiments and the Europeans their insane asylums. In their documentation, Darwinism is in the forefront.

Quote:
What do you mean by "a lower view of humanity"? Personally, I find it morally abhorent that someone who knows they are going to suffer a long, drawn-out and painful end to their life is not able to ask for help in ending it early.


Here we merely swapped opinions, which by their nature are difficult to argue. I personally believe that suffering can be beneficial, but this comes out of my personal religious belief.

In the Darwinist view, there is no meaning to life beyond continuing the species, so there can be no meaning to suffering.

Regarding your anecdote concerning the girl getting an abortion, we could swap anecdotes, but it is the underlying worldview that assigns meaning to those anecdotes. The anecdotes are essentially meaningless until we as individuals put the story into our worldview categories.

Their are implications to our beliefs. We need to understand them.
