This is truly tragic.
Instead of calling people with Down Syndrome “baboons,” I suggest doctors give the news of a Down Syndrome diagnosis with a smile saying, “There will be challenges but your child is nearly guaranteed to be a happy adult!”
And really that is the price of embracing the culture of death, of using death as a “medical treatment” – it is quite literally the elimination of happiness.
Very, very relevant.
In this wedding-obsessed world, I think we all need to take a breather. Instead of watching Four Weddings marathons and downloading The Knot app when we feel like we’re ready for a wedding, we need to look at our relationships and start thinking about what it means to marry our significant others. It’s about time we stop getting #engaged so we can finally go back to being engaged.
