Let us say that humankind has found a way to cure all forms of mental retardation no matter how severe and allow the recipients of that cure to become "normal". In light of this discovery we have a group of individuals who are lightly mentally retarded, independent enough to live on their own and handle their own finances and the like, who do not want to take the "cure" as they see it as an affront to their right to live and accept themselves for who they are and were born as.
There is no way these individuals could resist the whole of society descending upon them but for some reason it is 50/50 and you are the tiebreaker. Do you choose to let them live as they are, and with it, not force anyone to take the serum until they are at least able to consent or show a completely lack of ability to consent or do you force them to take the serum and administer the cure to newborns who are born with any form of retardation curing it immediately?
There is no middle ground sadly much like any other bills that must pass into law.
