Iceland eliminates Down Syndrome… through selective abortion!
Part of my reasoning for this blog… is to give y’all a snapshot of news stories that are unreported by the media, but also to talk about topics that are hard to hear.
March 21st is Down Syndrome Awareness Day!
“According to the most recent data available, the United States has an estimated termination rate for Down syndrome of 67 percent (1995-2011); in France it’s 77 percent (2015); and Denmark, 98 percent (2015). The law in Iceland permits abortion after 16 weeks if the fetus has a deformity — and Down syndrome is included in this category.”
67% of babies with Down Syndrome are aborted in the United States. Even though we have laws protecting the eggs of Bald Eagles but not children!
ICELAND has nearly 100% abortion rate of babies with Down Syndrome!
Please! Please! Please! Take 8 minutes to watch this video. I think it is fairly unbiased and informative.
There was this guy… from Chicago… that I kinda liked… even though he was a liberal atheist. (Sorry Mom!) But don’t worry because we didn’t make it to date two.
Because on date one, I naturally wanted to debate religion, politics, Nazi Germany, selective abortions and several other topics that I don’t think you are ever suppose to talk about on a date one… or maybe ever.
We actually had a blast!
It was civil and respectful.
(We need more of these conversations of politics and the morality of the human race!)
However, I couldn’t get past his argument on building a “superior race” with no genetic deformities.
Does this vernacular sound familiar?!?
Ya! I am going there!
Hitler was dedicated to making a superior race by eliminating the “inferior”. Hitler sought to eliminate not only Jews, but people of color and people with disabilities. He was obsessed with systematically eliminating his idea of those who didn’t deserve to live.
What kind of messed up world do we live in!?! Where we are letting this happen again!
I am not going to get into the ethical issues with abortion…
But how sad is this world! We live in a world with a potential life is ended because they may be “different”.
Because their life isn’t worth living!
To even suggest that a person with down syndrome or autism “SUFFERS” as people suggest is just so HEART BREAKING!
Heartbreaking that Iceland has 100% elimination (slaughter) of babies with down syndrome.
Shout out goes to the author of this piece…
“Anti-Abortion Activists Are Using Down Syndrome Parents to Argue Against Women’s Rights”
I love the word choice of this woman…
“In the U.S., anti-abortion leaders are hijacking this rhetoric of the disability rights movement to argue against women’s rights to choose their own future for their families and bodies.
1. “Anti-Abortion” a.k.a. PRO LIFE
Always has irritated me that PRO ABORTION or PRO CHOICE people aren’t called PRO DEATH or PRO KILLING BABIES.
^^^ CAN I GET AN AMEN TO THAT! ^^^
2. Hijacking… really they are hijacking? Kind of sounds like they are just standing up for the morality of mankind to me!
3. Choose… enough said!
I can’t even… Christina!
everyone deserves the right to life.
if you don’t have chills in the first two minutes of this… you may not be human
March 21st – Let’s celebrate life! ALL LIFE! The RIGHT to life!
