A professor at a Medical School asked his students this question:
"Here is the family history - The father has syphilis. The mother has TB. They already have had four children. The first is blind. The second had died. The third is deaf. The fourth has TB. The mother is pregnant. The parents are willing to have an abortion if you decide they should. What do you think?"
Most of the students decided on abortion.
"Congratulations," said the professor. "You have just murdered Beethoven!"
