As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies,,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“After she gave birth to their son, Samuel Forrest’s wife, told her husband’s she did not want to keep the baby because he has Down Syndrome. Instead of abandoning his child he filed for divorce.”
My Commentary: A feel-good story, indeed, and I agree with Mr. Forrest’s decision, 100%. However, the truth is, more than 67% of American women would choose to terminate their pregnancy after having their unborn child tested, and discovering a positive result for Down’s Syndrome. Eugenics is still alive and well, in America, and scrubbing “undesirables” from the gene pool to maintain “racial hygiene” has always been the “progressive” and “scientific” thing to do! Humanity has come such a long way from our barbaric past of arbitrary human sacrifice to false, man-made deities!
Prenatal Diagnosis of Down Syndrome: A Systematic Review of Termination Rates:
“The weighted mean termination rate was 67% (range: 61%–93%) among seven population‐based studies, 85% (range:?1 60%–90%) among nine hospital‐based studies, and 50% (range: 0%–100%) among eight anomaly‐based studies.”
Humanity has come such a long way from our barbaric past of arbitrary human sacrifice to false, man-made deitites!
