Welcome to the World, Trig Paxson Van Palin
Dr. Mohler writes about a couple's increasingly rare choice not to abort a baby with Down Syndrome. He writes,
Modern diagnostic tests are driving a "search and destroy mission" to eliminate babies judged to be inferior, disabled, or deformed. Some experts now believe that up to 90 percent of all pregnancies diagnosed as having a likelihood of Down syndrome end in abortion.
This is a sad situation for our country. Kid's who have Down Syndrome can and often are amazing blessings to their parents and in my case to their nanny. Dr. Mohler goes on,
Some ethicists now go so far as to argue for a "duty" to abort a baby with a Down diagnosis. This is an assault upon the dignity of every human being. The fact that so few Down syndrome babies now make it to birth is a sign that America is making its own pact with the Culture of Death.
Does this sound a little bit too similar to Hitler's plan for creating a "perfect" German race? Didn't he advocate for destroying persons he deemed 'inferior" Am I wrong on that? Is my history mixed up? If I were an adviser to a political candidate, would he have to distance himself from me for suggesting such a connection? At any rate, Christians in no way, shape, or form should mirror our culture's hatred for the disabled and unborn. Right?
