I agree, I mean I have a learning disability, and I grew up with both my parents who love me both. I think its just wrong, no mother shouldn't do that no matter if the child has a disability or not.
...in addition to children living with disabilities. Would you want your child to live this life of fear and pain? To see your child suffer the most painful of conditions (living without a brain, no defence against bacteria, muscles turning into bones... only some examples of what I mean by 'the most painful of conditions'), is that a view worthy of your day-to-day life? I'm sure you would not want your child to suffer despite the right to a life. In addition, I think I'm speaking for a few people when I say that aboartion is made legal before the particles and molecules become and form into a child.
I'm trying to be as respectful as possible. Really. But that up there just made me sick.
Why are we as people so ready to give up on these children? Sure, life is going to be difficult and probably more so than others without handicaps and such, but that's no reason to say, "Oh, might as well kill the kid." Can't we hope that there will be a cure for issues; can't we believe our child will be spiritually strong enough to overcome these challenges? Can't we believe that whatever happens in their life will be for the best, that these children were created for a reason? Killing them before they're even born--you're not even giving them a chance. It's just the convenient thing to do because you're lazy, because you're not willing to be strong enough for the obstacles that are to come. It seems as if the above quote is just saying that the disabled should never have been born. Is that what we've come to as people? That we can't even give the next generation a chance? That we can't even give each other a chance?
Why is that? Why?
You shouldn't give up on a child with disabilities without trying to help them. I was born with a torn retina in my right eye and it caused my right eye to go blind. My parents try to get the best for me. Children with disabilities may not function right, but they deserve to have a life. It's not their fault that they were born with a disability.
I simply adore the inspiration I am receiving as I read through these comments; the hope, the dreams, and the aspirations of every living being. Why does democracy have to degrade the strong and never-giving-up humans with disabilities? Why are they so quick to judge what a human's fate will be? In reality, the ones with disabilities are the stronger ones in life, as they fight every day of their lives. I love my friends with disabilities especially, as they truly feel emotions and are intelligent people.
Exactly. Thank you.
