Eugenic Selective Abortion

By Olivia Summers1458680523458

Cloaked in the guise of compassion and morality, eugenics through abortion is an increasingly disturbing reality. Eugenics is “the study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species . . . especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits.” And today, eugenics is targeting unborn babies for selective abortion.

The U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) states that parties to the CRPD “recognize the inherent dignity and worth and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” The U.S., the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) states that “physical or mental disabilities in no way diminish a person’s right to fully participate in all aspects of society.”

However, these statements ring hollow in light of the fact that an increasing number in the medical profession are forced to violate their consciences participating in eugenic selection of unborn babies. For instance, we recently helped our European affiliate, the European Centre for Law & Justice (ECLJ), file an application with the European Court of Human Rights regarding a Spanish physician who is being forced to give prenatal diagnosis consultations. These prenatal diagnosis consultations are used to detect diseases or malformation in unborn babies, and, when disease or defects are detected, they often lead to an abortion.

Unsurprisingly, the largest abortion business in America and one of the largest in the world, Planned Parenthood, was founded by a eugenicist.  The abortion industry is pushing to force doctors worldwide to ignore their Hippocratic Oath and to require them to perform these selective abortions.  We’re not only fighting back in courts globally, we exposing the sick thinking behind this push.

Bob Edwards, a world-renowned embryologist once stated, “Soon it will be a sin for parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children.” Such thinking strips children of all humanity and relegates them consumer commodities with none of the rights, dignity, and worth espoused in the CRPD and ADA.

Should Stephen Hawking be told that he has no worth and is merely a “heavy burden” on society because he is diseased? And Chopin – whose music delights people to this day – was he merely a drain on society because he had a genetic disorder?

We here at the ACLJ, stand on the principle that each person does indeed have inherent worth and dignity. Furthermore, that worth and dignity should be fiercely protected for all persons; especially for the most vulnerable – unborn babies. We continue to advocate for the right of medical professionals not to participate in abortions, including selective abortions. And we continue to fight for the right of all unborn babies to experience life and “fully participate in all aspects of society.”

By Harry G. Hutchison1589985876585

As we have previously warned you , Speaker Pelosi and the radical pro-abortion Left are trying to shoehorn more funding for abortion and other items into the next relief bill.
