After reading Dr. Roy's Thoughts on the British Sunday Times report that otherwise healthy babies are being aborted for treatable defects such as having a club foot, I was left with a feeling of disgust and revulsion. (H/T to Dr. Roy and Nealenews)
One baby had been aborted at 7 months for having a cleft palate! Canadian singer Rita MacNeil had a cleft palate which was corrected by surgery. What if her parents had decided that such a defect would render her undesirable? (No wise cracks, please).
The article is quite an alarming read. I am struck with two thoughts. First of all, with our publicly funded abortion-on-demand philosophy, what is stopping us from going there, if we aren't at this point already? Also, with new research and developments in genetics, aren't we awfully close to an industry of "Designer Babies", with easy disposal of the mistakes?
One thing for sure, Hitler would approve of this aspect of our "socially progressive" mentality.
