Every human life has value.

NOVA Employment posted this picture on Facebook with the caption: “Accessible playgrounds are awesome. LIKE this if you think EVERY child deserves to have a little fun.”

It’s beyond awesome. And, yes, every child has a right to pursue happiness…and have some fun!

People who advocate for killing disabled unborn children say that they want to spare the child a life of misery. But, who says that disabled children are miserable? Certainly not the children, themselves! This is the kind of thing we need to be doing more of for children with disabilities to help make their lives even more enjoyable, not trying to prevent them from ever seeing the light of day.

    The vast minority of the disabled don’t want to live. This isn’t unique to the disabled, as there is also a scarce minority of able-bodied people that are suicidal as well. Those people need support and help to live, not to die.

    The rest of us want to live, even if things are difficult financially, physically, or mentally from day-to-day.

    I know of one baby that was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus 34 years ago. She could have been spared a lifetime of useless misery by abortion… except that, right now, she’s just arrived home from a walk to the park with our son. When I get home, I’m going to test him on his kindergarten math and spelling lessons, which my college-graduate, homeschool-teaching, craft-store-operator wife of ten years somehow manages to help him with, despite clearly having nothing to live for.
