This poster is brilliant and echoes something I’ve said on this blog many times:
All abortion is equally abhorrent and offensive to humanity. It targets one segment of society, the unborn, and deems it worthy of life only at the behest of another segment. “Eugenic” abortion, however, goes one step further and takes a class of born citizens, the sick and disabled, and says to us, “your life is not worth living, you are a burden to yourself and society and you, and others like you, are better off dead.”
That’s a fact, Jack, whether you think that’s what you’re saying or not. Advocating for abortion for unborn children with various diseases and disabilities in order to “spare them a life of suffering” suggests that one must be perfect in mind and body in order to have a fulfilling life, which sends a message to those of us poor fools living with disabilities outside the womb that you do not think that our lives are worth living.
Here’s another fact that I’ve pointed out here many times before: according to a recent study, disabled children have the same range of happiness and unhappiness as all children…but their parents scored their children’s quality of life much lower than the children themselves.
By killing unborn children with disabilities, you might think that you are sparing someone a miserable life, but what you’re really doing is projecting onto them your own fear of hardship and suffering. Everyone has the right to pursue happiness, including children with disabilities, and the reality is that most of them will enjoy their lives immensely…if they’re given the opportunity.
