“We must re-locate our humanity in the political solutions to this pandemic. Practically speaking, the solution being proffered is to sacrifice the most vulnerable among us for the sake of the economy.”
– Bishop Jack Lumanog
For more on this, read this well written piece from The New Republic which says it better than I ever could:
“Set aside the moral bankruptcy of American conservatives who have spent decades lecturing the country about abortion rights, stem-cell research, and right-to-die laws, only to demand our elders be sacrificed for a few points on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. What’s truly galling about their ghoulish actuarial calculus is that it’s a totally false choice between the ‘cure’ of a partial economic shutdown and the ‘disease’ of a dangerous pandemic.”
