This is more of a series of philosophical dialectics than it is a proper story. It explores a complex ethical situation from the perspective of a group that emphatically denies that it has a right to life, or any say in whether it lives or dies. It uses entirely fictionalized religious iconography, dogma, and symbolism to examine issues and situations you may recognize from the world around you.
