Another Op-ED on Eugenic Abortion

From Seatle PI:

Medical researchers estimate that 80 percent or more of babies now prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. (They estimate that since 1989, 70 percent of Down syndrome fetuses have been aborted.) A high percentage of fetuses with cystic fibrosis are aborted, as evident in Kaiser Permanente's admission to The New York Times that 95 percent of its patients in Northern California choose abortion after they find out through prenatal screening that their fetus will have the disease.

The frequent use of eugenic abortion also can be measured in dwindling populations with certain disabilities. Since the '60s, the number of Americans with anencephaly and spina bifida has markedly declined. This dropping trend line corresponds to the rise of prenatal screening. Owing to prenatal technology and eugenic abortion, some rare conditions, such as the genetic disorder Tay-Sachs, are even vanishing in America, according to doctors.

Will the Predictions of Bob Edwards, the embryologist who created the first test-tube baby through in vitro fertilization, Come to light?

He Said, ""soon it will be a sin of parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children."

For those who think Sen Chillary Klinton is pro-life consider what she told Sen. Rick Santorum, "She was saying there had to be an exemption for disabled children being aborted as opposed to healthy children being aborted." In other words, "children with disabilities should have less constitutional protection than children who are healthy."

The recent intro to screenings has been primarily for the purpose of have a "Perfect World" with "Perfect Kids".

Since when is a cleft Palate a life changing lower quality defect?

In some cases, the aborted children aren't disabled at all but are mere carriers of a disease or stand a chance of getting one later in life. Prenatal screening has made it possible to abort children on guesses and probabilities.

In 2003, Ob-Gyn Savita Khosla of Hackensack, N.J., agreed to pay $1.2 million to a couple and child (Under the Guise of WRONGFUL-BIRTH SUITS) after she failed to flag Fragile X syndrome, a form of mental retardation caused by a defective gene on the X chromosome.....Khosla settled, giving $475,000 to the parents and $750,000 to the child they wished they had aborted...THERE'S A COMFORTING THOUGHT!

Reminds me of a woman who was online with me in a store who was commenting about her child who had a mild form of downs ( I wasnt sure he was a downs baby it was so mild, not until I heard her speaking), her voice full of regret and SHAME, because she waited until later in life to have a child!

It is the attitude of society towards parents with disabled children that goad them into aborting rather then bring another child to bear pressure on an already burdened medical system.

As an accepted practice now parents are shamed from bringing forth a "Defective" child. Is this what we have become? A society of "LIL HITLERS?"
