I actually don’t see an issue with aborting children who will have down syndrome or anything like that. Isn’t it just helping them not have to live a life like that? Also, they’re not aware of anything, so it’s not gonna matter to ’em.
Please watch this video and tell me that a child with Down syndrome isn’t a valuable member of our human family. Also, watch this video and tell me if you have done as much as that man has to change the world.
Eugenics is evil and is the ultimate form of discrimination and ableism. Similar to many of the assumptions underlying the medical model of disability among many clinicians, the ableist societal worldview is that the able-bodied are the norm in society, and that people who have disabilities must either strive to become that norm or should keep their distance from able-bodied people. A disability is thus, inherently, a bad thing that must be overcome.
The ableist worldview holds that disability is an error, a mistake, or a failing, rather than a simple consequence of human diversity, akin to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender.
