Geordi (talking to a scientist from a society that practices genetic engineering) : So, I guess if I had been conceived on your world I wouldn’t even be here right now, would I?

Scientist: No.

Geordi: I’d have been terminated as a fertilized cell.

Scientist: It was the wish of our founders that no one should have to suffer a life of disability.

Geordi: Who gave them the right to decide whether or not I should be here? Whether I might have something to contribute? 

Scientist: I… I don’t know what to say.


Abortion represents the ultimate form of ableism, literally resulting in the death of a living human being simply because he or she had a mental or physical challenge.

Over 90% of children diagnosed with Down syndrome are killed in the womb. These are often late-term abortions resulting in these children’s dismemberment while still alive.

If you are ‘pro-choice’, you are the ultimate ableist.
