Richard Dawkins Ranks Live Pig Above Human Fetus

At his National Review Online blog, Discovery fellow Wesley J. Smith hammers Richard Dawkins for his tweet that a human fetus has less intrinsic value than an adult pig. Presumably, many on the right will share Smith’s dismay. But how many are willing to acknowledge that the Dawkins view is the logical extension of his Darwinism?
Does it matter? Well, yes. Dawkins, Pinker, Coyne et al. are the new advocates for eugenics.
