What do people think about selective abortion. Please read articles I have linked up to. On grounds of gender: Fetal Sex Test Used as Step To Abortion - New York Times On grounds of disability: DISABLED PERSON S PERSPECTIVE ON EUGENIC ABORTION Abortion and disability or eugenic abortion While selective abortion on grounds of gender is usually frowned on, selective abortion on grounds of disability is actually incorage. These double standards speak volumes about how some people view disabled people. In fact Britain you can abort a disabled person up until birth. (yes I did say 30 months in another thread but I've since checked and it's up until birth) I've know several people with downs syndrome and they are no more disabled then we are. I've also known people with Spina bifida. Why should people consider it ok to abort on grounds of disability and not gender. Why should there be a differance? Why should any baby be aborted if they are fully capable of surviving outside the womb. Wether with a disability or not? What is so wrong with being disabled anyway? Please this thread is for discussing selective and late term abortion ONLY. There is lots of other threads for discussing abortion in general.
