In MANY cases, they ARE better off dead you idiot. Its unpleasant, but its a FACT of life.<quoted text>
Why don't you just kill off every person with a birth defect, because according to you twits, they're better off dead anyway.
Who says it's "as it was meant to"?? You DO know that in the last century, it was MEANT to die, right? Many times brutally, horribly and often alone? People ABANDONED babies with "birth defects" you imbicile. People couldn't hand it, emotionally, financially and physically. The ONLY difference now is that medicine can keep these poor souls alive much longer than they were "meant to" be. Babies that were born so terribly harmed, altered or sick were "meant to be" dead, and were left to die.You idiots talk as though it's pro-lifers who want a perfect world, but it's you fools who talk as though that's what you expect. If there's a birth defect, KILL the human life in utero, rather than allow life to go on as it was meant to.
You know why Downs Syndrome is not as prevelent today? Because people ABORT those fetus's early on. Is that "right"?? For many, YES it is. CAN those downs kids live full lives? Some of them, yes. Others are still abandoned to state homes, nursing homes and the like. You act like we're talking about MINOR "birth defects", and the FACT is that nobody is talking about that. We're talking about conditons that are not compatable with ongoing life.
YOU want to take care of those kids? Go adopt some of them. Tho I doubt you'd be allowed to adopt.
And YOU act like all parents of these fatally ill children want these kids, when the FACT is that MANY of them would have aborted if they'd known as has been proven MANY times now.You people don't see any purpose whatsoever for the existance of children with serious defects especially if they'd die, and that says something about your ignorance and callousness and not anything about pro-lifers, or about the parents of the children with the serious birth defects.
DOnt you DARE act like YOU are the spokesman for these parents. YOu aren't SHIT and you dont speak for anyone but yourself.
Most parents of Tay-Sachs parents I've met didn't know their child would have it until it was born, until it was too late. MOST of the parents I've met have admitted they'd have aborted if they'd have known. They didn't CHOOSE to have a child with Tay Sachs, but they DID deal with the disease and their dying child because they HAD to, not because they wanted to.Because there's an organization for Tay Sachs, that means there are parents who don't think the way you fools do. They have chosen to have and love their children and make them as comfortable as possible until what's going to happen happens. Go ahead and judge those people as being cruel for wanting their Tay Sachs child born, like you judge pro-lifers who don't believe in killing those children in utero.
Nobody here has said in ANY WAY that those parents are "cruel", so stop your ignorant lying. You seem to forget, that in the Jewish faith, abortion is NOT the theological issue it is for extremist Christians. For those that find out and abort, its heartbreaking, but its not as heartbreaking as gestating a child that you KNOW will die a horriffic death.
If you ever witnessed such a death, you'd not be mouthing off about something you know NOTHING about.
