Impressive Pittsburgh conference

If the proper practice of medicine in our culture includes the skill of identifying and eliminating a prenatal twin who fails to meet the criteria of "normal," then we truly do need a massive overhaul of the "health care" system, and it is the soul of our nation that is "deformed."

What is the real scandal here — that this doctor was ready to kill a baby with Down syndrome, or merely that he aborted “the wrong baby?” The answer to that question will tell us all we need to know about the conscience of the age.

"The significant reduction in the number of people with Down syndrome is not due to an increased capacity among our medical healers to treat or ''cure'' those affected. Rather it is because of our improved ability to weed them out. Prenatal testing is ever more widespread as a way of ensuring human beings with unwanted traits are not born. Individuals and couples choose to eliminate those who have this disability."
"A Sarasota doctor has lost his license for mistakenly aborting a healthy twin during a procedure targeting a deformed fetus. He was targeting a fetus with Down syndrome"

"Today, new advances being made with prenatal genetic testing aren't for the benefit of the family, but for the destruction of the pre-born child within the mother. The ability to diagnose diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis, Down Syndrome, and others while the child is still in the womb means a greater chance a woman will be encouraged and pressured to abort, thus limiting that child’s “burden” on society."

"We also know that children are aborted in droves upon the diagnosis of Down Syndrome, which is a disability, not a disease. In Ireland, up to 50% children diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted. That half of all children diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted is shocking, but it is a relatively low rate when compared to the neighboring United Kingdom where the number is around 90%. In the United States, the percentage of Down Syndrome babies carried to term is in the single digits."
