The Ultimate Expression of Ableism

This sweet child was killed by his parents after 19 weeks of life because he wasn’t ‘normal’. He had Spina Bifida, the same condition my son was born with, as well as one of my cousins. Both had corrective surgery and are doing fine.

This child’s parents had this to say about why they killed him…

After thinking about it for as long as we could, we came to the decision that it would be cruel for him to live a life of being pointed at, laughed at, and not being “normal”, so we chose to give birth early.

Clearly, they remain self delusional about what they have done. They didn’t choose to “give birth early”, they chose to kill their son through late-term abortion because of his disability. What a sad world we have created where parents refuse to give their children every chance possible at life.
