OK, let's average the point of view of an adult man with a somewhat greater
than average intelligence, a lot greater actually, with that of a fetus. I
have a hunch the adult Lee Corbin would win that election in a landslide.

Otherwise growth has no purpose and stagnation is the ultimate virtue. I
don't buy it for one second!
