Good Rejoinder To A Spurious Rhetorical Point

Seen in the comments to this piece:

Q: "How exactly does one bring God himself to justice? I mean, if he's in charge of everything, and he's exterminating fully half of us [via miscarriage] before we're even born, doesn't that render him culpable in some way?"

A: God also kills us when we get too old. Going by that way of thinking, maybe we should make it legal to exterminate the elderly?

He kills a lot of people who get cancer, too. Maybe if we did that we could save a lot of money on health care.
