Norway: Vast Majority of Down Syndrome Babies are Aborted

According to a study published in the August 2008 issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The researchers looked at 49 314 births that took place in Norway between 1987 and 2004. Of those births, there were 88 cases of Down Syndrome. 38 were detected prenatally. Of those, 84% were terminated.

But this has nothing to do with eugenics. People don't want to deal with a sick child, that's all. And besides, the parents were doing the babies a favour by killing them, what with the hardships they would face.

Nothing to do with eugenics whatsoever.
