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.
This is what is wrong with our world. Selfish, spineless, empty self-indulgent lives that lead to a type of gratification involving nothing that is not immediately pleasing and pleasurable.
There is absolutely no sense of sacrifice or honor in this report, nothing that doesn’t make me worried for the fate of this family or of these children in particular.
I welcome your thoughts on this issue.
“No one understands the flaw in the rape-abortion argument better than Rebecca Kiessling, who at 18 learned that she was conceived in a brutal rape by a serial rapist who held her mother at knife-point.
“Please understand that whenever you identify yourself as being ‘pro-choice,’ or whenever you make that exception for rape,” she writes in her testimony, “what that really translates into is you being able to stand before me, look me in the eye, and say to me, ‘I think your mother should have been able to abort you.’””
“The ‘After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?’ paper argues that the act wouldn’t be classed as euthanasia because the best interest of the foetus or newborn being killed is not necessarily the primary reason his or her life is being terminated. The authors state that after-birth abortion should be made legal and it should be permitted on the same grounds as abortion. They added that it wouldn’t be the same as infanticide.”
Thanks to MRI technology.
“Eight percent of all babies in the womb who test positive for Down syndrome or a genetic anomaly survive and are born1. That means 92% of all babies who test positive are aborted. Ninety two percent never get a chance; reading that fact shook me to my core.”
