Frankly, a lot of Down Syndrome people are better than a lot of other people are. And the idea that they shouldn’t exist is chilling and horrifying.
Killing those with Down syndrome serves no rational purpose. It is a policy born of ignorance and fear. Worse, what it communicates to those so affected is simply unimaginable.
Real compassion means supporting parents who make the difficult decision to accept their babies as they are, and to love them when they’re born.

I am aware of the future Meredith Isaksen’s son was facing. Following her logic, my mother should have aborted me.
