Down Syndrome is disappearing now that ableism is all the rage

Down Syndrome is disappearing now that ableism is all the rage August 15, 2017

In Iceland.   And other countries are following suit.  Of course it should sound familiar.  We’ve heard similar arguments before.  Downs Syndrome is a big target now, with a growing number of people following the view that it’s better to terminate an inconvenient life than deal with it.  It’s chilling.   It’s even worse that we, who spend our time spewing judgment on those who have come before, seem hellbent on repeating all of their most egregious mistakes.

“Olafsdottir tells women who are wrestling with the decision or feelings of guilt: “This is your life — you have the right to choose how your life will look like.””

The gospel of the post-modern era:  It’s my life.  All other priorities are rescinded.  All other considerations secondary.  So much for the damn company.  We’re doing just fine ourselves.
