Down Babies Aborted After 24 Weeks in UK

Daily Mail:

The data reveals that in 2010 482 foetuses were aborted for Down's syndrome, including 10 who were over 24 weeks.

Don't treat the baby. Kill him. Much easier that way.

And if a fetus has to die in the name of convenience, well tough luck fetus, right feminists?

Only the woman's autonomy matters. The life of a human being whom she should be responsible for is secondary.


However, Ann Furedi, chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), said: 'The publication of these statistics after a campaign by the anti-abortion lobby reveals little more than their own vindictiveness.


Typical leftist mentality.

People who have nothing to hide, hide nothing.

It's simple: any activity that requires tax money is open to public scrutiny, unless it's a matter of national security.

'Abortion for foetal anomaly is legal. Behind every one of these figures are doctors and nurses who deserve our admiration and support, and a couple who have often lost a much-wanted pregnancy.'

But the couple did not lose a much-wanted Down Syndrome baby.

The pregnancy seems to have been more desired than the actual baby himself.

And no, having your child killed is not loving act, no matter what your intentions or how much you cry about it. 

Mercy consists in alleviating pain and trying to obtain a better quality of life, not destroying the person whom one assumes will never have a good quality of life (by one's own subjective standards!).
