quote: So many mistreated babies and kids with Downs live terrible lives. Instead of throwing resources at a nonviable fetus, why can't the church help children with Down syndrome that are already alive? Because anti-abortion folks care more about fetuses with fairytale narratives than actual babies.
Probably one of the most disgusting things I've read in a while.

Me and my wife want to adopt eventually, and she brought up the idea of adopting a child with downs syndrome. She loves them, but I reminded her that you're essentially signing up for a life time of care.
Raising children to be functioning adults is hard enough. Caring for a person you know may never be fully or partially self reliant is daunting. I applaud anyone who faces and says yes.

All the more reason to incarcerate the woman. Sh knows if she fricks some dude she doesn't want a baby with that she might get pregnant. Take her out of the gene pool for being an immature idiot who thinks its ok to kill the baby so she's not inconvenienced. Either that or forced tubal.

But the article asked why churches don't use resources to give Down's syndrome kids already alive a better life instead of finding a family for one that hasn't been born yet. I'm simply pointing out that churches already do support charities that assist special needs children. Why can't they do both?

A word to the wise: Jezebel is the feminist arm of Gawker Media, which is the latest verified AssCancer of the Internet. Of COURSE the article is a piece of shite. Save yourself and everyone else the time and never read or link to a Gawker tributary site ever again.
