  •  A diminished life (0+ / 0-)

    could be of several kinds, but medically speaking, my list would include e.g. chronic obstructive lung disease, uncontrolled diabetes, stunting due to malnutrition, lead-poisoning-caused brain damage, AIDS, river blindness, MS, loss of limbs, cancer, extreme obseity, chronic pain syndromes...

    You understand, none of these conditions diminish a human being as a valuable person who deserves to live, but they can certainly restrict abilities and enjoyment and/or shorten life.
