Down Syndrome belongs
IN honor of Ds awareness, please click here to read an old post I wrote.
I must be naive,I thought people only aborted their "Ds babies"" because they were scared or didn't have all the facts. I have recently been directed to a few blogs that are actually, trying to do the opposite of what I do. They are trying to END Down syndrome. Yep, that's right, I said "End Down syndrome". Apparently, people think that it's immoral to bring a child w/ Ds into the world. They think people only do it for religious reasons, or they do it to be some sort of martyr, who wants to suffer and get attention and sympathy by raising a child with Down syndrome. The people writing these blogs, think "our" only goal in life is to be happy, and having a child w/Ds would certainly thwart any happiness you could of had, so you must abort. I'm sorry, I won't provide a link to these blogs!
I believe people decide NOT to abort their babies with Ds because:
1. Uh, how about because it's their baby and it doesn't matter. They will love their child no matter what.
2. Abortion is murder. There I said it. I don't see what religion has to do with it. You don't have to be a follower of Christ in order to not commit murder.
Also, now I will be religious. If you had an abortion, God will forgive you and take away the guilt. But when I hear stories about people who had an abortion because of Down syndrome, these people always seem to think it's ok, and God helped them to make this decision, and it's just not true. God creates children with Down syndrome, because they belong. They are his creation and nobody has the right to get rid of them.
