It will be done.

Back in the early 90s, CNN had a daytime talk show and one day they had as a guest some bizarre female with peculiar job description of “medical ethicist” who was talking about invitro fertilization. Now, as all intelligent people are in favor of that, it was a surprise that she would even think to question why anyone would choose that route to produce offspring if the more usual method did not work. But she did.

And then someone called in.

And the person who called in told the ethicist, in no uncertain terms, that she could take her objections and shove them because the caller was going to use it and could not care less what anyone else thought about the matter.

The look on the poor ethicist’s face was priceless. The dummy actually lived under the illusion that her opinion somehow would matter.

The lesson is clear. If someone really wants to do something, all the preaching in the world is not going to make one bit of difference. If something can be done, it will be done and words will not stop it.
