‘Bioethicist’ Richard Dawkins is doubling down on his controversial comments suggesting that parents of babies with Down Syndrome should “abort them and try again.” Dawkins now says that aborting babies with Down syndrome is the “moral and sensible” choice.
“For what it’s worth, my own choice would be to abort the Down fetus and, assuming you want a baby at all, try again. Given a free choice of having an early abortion or deliberately bringing a Down child into the world, I think the moral and sensible choice would be to abort,” he says about what he would tell a parent of a baby diagnosed in the womb with Down syndrome. “And, indeed, that is what the great majority of women, in America and especially in Europe, actually do.” And, again, Dawkins says it would be immoral not to kill such a baby in an abortion.
