At this point in my career in talking about the Left and their evil ways, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise to see an MSM article defending a woman’s “right” to kill her own baby for any given reason, including Down syndrome in the yet-to-be-born human.
I’m not surprised; I’m not shocked, but I am appalled. I am outraged. The very defense of any murder such as this is horrible and I can’t fathom the reason anyone has to defend this.
Ruth Marcus wrote an article on the Washington Post titled: “I would’ve aborted a fetus with Down syndrome. Women need that right.”
I’ll likely restate this point later in the article, but I’ll present it here initially: how could you possibly say you’re a loving parent if you’d be willing to abort a baby with Down syndrome?
People say that you should love your child regardless of who they are, what they are and what they do. So how come that love is instantly taken away if the child has Down syndrome? If you’re a pregnant woman, excited at the life growing inside of you and you love the fact that you’ll soon be a mother (or mother of more than one child), how could you simply take away that love you have for the child if you were to find out it had Down syndrome?
Either you didn’t actually love that child or you wouldn’t choose to abort that child. The abortion of any child is never done out of love or mercy. Quite the opposite, in fact. It’s done out of evil, hatred and selfishness. By that title alone, Ruth admits she would’ve hated the idea of raising a child with Down syndrome and would’ve chosen to not love that child. A Down syndrome baby is "too inconvenient" for her selfish, self-centered life. For the fact that the Left says love isn’t a choice, she sure is choosing not to love any child she could have if they had Down syndrome.
But let’s dive in to the horrible article. The first paragraph is honestly rather insulting.
“There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable – and wrong.”
First, who the hell is this evil woman to determine what is right and what is wrong? That’s not up to a single man, woman or child to define. It’s up to GOD to define. Do you see why I said this paragraph was insulting?
Second, I find it interesting how she would call us “antiabortion” people. Does that mean she is admitting that her position isn’t “pro-choice” but rather “pro-abortion”? Because if she considers herself to be outside of the “antiabortion circle”, naturally, one would expect her to be in the “pro-abortion circle”, in that case. So you see, it’s not about a person’s choice. It’s about sentencing any innocent child to DEATH upon a person’s whim.
Finally, I can understand that she’s essentially going by the Roe v. Wade case to legalize abortion when she says “barring women from terminating their pregnancies… [is] unconstitutional.”
But I would like to dispute the very Supreme Court case. How could one possibly say that aborting a baby is constitutional? Where in the Constitution of the United States of America does it say that a woman has the right to kill her own child while inside the womb? What Amendment, what section in that Amendment and under what clause does it say a woman has such a right? Murder is not a constitutional right!
Regardless, I’ll return to the stomach-churning article. Eventually, she mentions that she had performed tests for Down syndrome while she was pregnant with her two children. She then says: “I can say without hesitation that, tragic as it would have felt and ghastly as a second-trimester abortion would’ve been, I would have terminated those pregnancies had the testing come back positive. I would have grieved the loss and moved on.”
Could you imagine being her child and reading that you were this close to being unloved and thrown away like trash by your own mother just because of something you had absolutely no control over? I don’t know how old her children are, but I can imagine the shock they must’ve felt if they read the article and read how their mother would’ve killed them due to such imperfection.
Then she goes on to say: “And I am not alone. More than two-thirds of American women choose abortion in such circumstances. Isn’t that the point – or at least inherent in the point – of prenatal testing in the first place?”
NO! The point of prenatal testing is to check and see if there will be possible issues in the future of the child’s life and ACT ACCORDINGLY WITH THE RESULTS! You perform these tests to see if your child is ok. And if it’s not, you act accordingly for the BENEFIT of the child’s FUTURE! Not to justify your decision to END that child’s future.
I may not be a parent yet. Not even close. But I understand common sense, which is more than any Leftist can claim. When my future wife and I are expecting a baby, we’ll perform these tests. If they come back negative, we’ll praise the Lord and thank Him for giving us a perfectly healthy baby. But if they come back positive, we’ll pray to the Lord for strength and guidance in what would almost certainly be a very pressing and trying future for us.
But regardless of the results of the test, we’ll love that child more than we’ll love ourselves. Ruth here is admitting that she loves herself more than her children, in a sense. If she’s unwilling to raise a child with Down syndrome which would certainly be a life-long commitment and job to do, that’s indicative of the limited “love”, if there is any at all, within her heart.
It’s indicative of the sort of selfish “love” that is honestly very much expected from people who support abortion.
Indicative of the sort of selfish “love” that was present in noted-racist Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, as well as just about anyone in the 30s and 40s that supported Nazi Germany’s eugenics program – a program that essentially championed the very thing Ruth is defending: the extermination of “undesirables”.
Those undesirables began with the lame, cripple and stupid (not Joe Biden stupid, but actual mental retardation). Then, they moved on with the “socially undesirable” i.e. the Jews, Gypsies, blacks and such.
Now, moving away from the article directly, people on Twitter made sure to utterly destroy the article and the arguments it presents.
“Monstrous evil unashamedly displayed. You would never say that women need the right to abort, say, a fetus predisposed to be gay, or a fetus predisposed to be alcoholic, or a fetus predisposed to be (*cough* China *cough*) female,” said one Twitter user, referencing the fact that sex-selective abortion takes commonplace in China, given that the government does not regulate it despite the fact that it’s illegal and that the Chinese culture tends to prefer males over females… for some reason.
Another Twitter user sought to use a study to defend children with Down syndrome: “A 2011 study found that nearly 99% of people with Down syndrome over the age of 12 said they were happy with their lives. 99% said they loved their families. 97% said they liked their brothers and sisters. 86% felt they could make friends easily.”
Ok, now I see why the Left hates children with Down syndrome. 99% say they were happy with their lives? I doubt a double digit percentage of Leftists can say they feel the same. They are always angry and hateful and poisonous towards everything, seemingly. “99% said they loved their families.” Well, the Left has been trying to utterly bugger up the very definition of a family, so it makes sense that the Left hates people with Down syndrome. They’re envious.
They’re envious that 99% of people with Down syndrome over the age of 12 live happy lives. The Left is never happy, even when Obama was President. They have always been angry and outraged at everything. If they got absolutely everything they wanted, they’d still be miserable. Not because they don’t have what they want, but because they do and there’s nothing left for them to campaign for and try to win elections. No new “issue” that would need to be addressed. We’d simply be left with a worse hell than the Soviet Union was.
You thought I was joking when I said that I see why the Left hates people with Down syndrome, didn’t you? I understand the mind of the Left, which is why I can so easily refute them and even mock them. I understand they are entirely hateful people. People who thrive on the anger and hatred of a group of people (i.e. the outraged Parkland students) to try and push their agenda.
While saying the Left hates people with Down syndrome may sound like an exaggeration, in reality, it’s no exaggeration at all. They hate just about everyone, so I would expect them to hate people with Down syndrome as well. You have to understand that these people are people who live without Christ in their hearts. As such, hatred and anger stirs up from within them without much deterrent.
I’ve mentioned before the different sorts of evil. The difference between chaotic evil and lawful evil. To simplify them, chaotic evil is evil without a conscience. Lawful evil is evil with a conscience that understands that what he or she is doing is evil and is ok with it.
An example of chaotic evil would be someone like Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz. You can’t possibly convince me he has a conscience; a little voice inside his head that tells him when doing something is wrong. That little voice in his head is likely drowned out by all the other voices in his head that tell him he should kill people, and that, given recent news stories, he dreams of “killing people and [being] covered in blood,” according to a Miami Herald report about Cruz’s psychiatric file written 4 years ago… which honestly raises more red flags about the incompetence of the Broward County Sheriff’s office, the county school, and all involved investigative authorities.
An example of lawful evil would be someone like Ruth. She champions evil, likely knowing it’s evil, but convinces herself that it’s just and right. A better example would be Obama, who did evil things, knowing full well they were evil, and was happy to have done it.
But both are evil just the same. Evil that stems from their hearts. From Man’s very own nature. From not having Christ in their hearts. Only someone who doesn’t have Christ in their hearts would be willing to abort any baby for any given reason. Only someone who doesn’t have Christ in their hearts would be so selective in their “love” of their child to abort them for such an imperfection.
And if two-thirds of women in America choose to kill their own child based on the Down syndrome test coming back positive, I shall pray for their souls. Someone should.
“For fools speak folly, their hearts are bent on evil: They practice ungodliness and spread error concerning the Lord; the hungry they leave empty and from the thirsty they withhold water.”
