Every human life has value.

Genetics is not the be all and end all in determining what the “quality” of someone’s life will be — both for themselves and for those around them.

In this video Dr. Jérôme Lejeune tells an incredible – and true! – story that goes well with my article last week and perfectly illustrates the arrogance of deciding who is worthy of birth or not — especially based solely on one’s genetic makeup.

Once again, Humanity’s greatness is shown best in how we love and care for those in need. We should be concerned with finding cures and making the world a place where people with disabilities feel welcome and valued, not trying to snuff them out of existence.
