Die “Euthanasie”-Kinder

Never again

“I have two daughters. They both have Down syndrome. They taught me what love really means. They showed me a world that they see and that they are in. It’s a beautiful world where everyone loves one another and the sun always shines.

It breaks my heart to know that almost all women terminate their pregnancy if their baby is identified with Down syndrome. But how can I blame them? Marketing and media are still used to condition the public to think of disability in terms of suffering and burden.

Are we really that free? This article explores how social marketing is used to raise public acceptance that children with certain genetic variations are deliberately aborted. Seventy-six years after the war, eugenic ideas have not changed.

By separating genetic science from humanity we dehumanize our (unborn) children. Vulnerability is not caused by disability; it is caused by every act that devalues human life. We are all vulnerable.
