Autism has never been shown to develop in the womb. Autism develops in early childhood. I don’t think such a screening will ever exist. You’re also assuming that mothers will abort because of disabilities. Some studies suggest that autism may begin in the womb, but even if true, there’s no way to know for sure. The most recent study stated that brain changes start in the womb. How are we to be certain of changes that are normal and changes that are autistic? You’re reaching.
Seriously, you need a dose of reality. First, autism is a chromosomal identifiable abnormality. Please visit this website for more information.
Now that you have been spoon-fed, ask yourself this: If nine out of ten mothers abandon their Down syndrome children to abortion, why wouldn’t they do the same to an autistic child? It is also important for you to realize that many perfectly healthy children are killed because their mother’s doctor either mistakenly diagnosed their child as having a mental or physical challenge or they simply mentioned that it might be a possibility. We have reached a point in our sad and depraved culture that we not only avoid scratched and dented merchandise, we avoid scratched and dented children.
If you wouldn’t kill a disabled child already born, you shouldn’t kill them while still in the womb. Aborting a child simply because they are disabled is the ultimate form of ableism. And it is the ultimate expression of selfishness.
