“In Iceland,” the doctor pointed out, “every single baby—100 percent of all those diagnosed with Down syndrome—are aborted.”The horrors of the statement above can scarcely be grasped. Iceland has become the first nation to boast of eradicating Down syndrome from its country.
Dr. McParland expounded on this systematic annihilation stating, “There hasn’t been a baby with Down syndrome born in Iceland in the past five years.”
Iceland is not alone in its aspirations to create a “Down syndrome-free” world. The holocaust of Down syndrome babies is a global epidemic, taking the lives of human beings created in the image of God on the basis of a prenatal diagnosis indicating Down syndrome.Denmark follows closely behind Iceland and predicts to be a “Down-syndrome free” nation in the next 10 years.
Meanwhile, 90 percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome in the womb are aborted in Great Britain and the United States.
Among the many reasons these statistics are so tragic, some babies diagnosed in utero with Down syndrome are born without the condition, while in other cases, doctors who fail to recognize markers for Down syndrome through prenatal testing are open to shockingly titled “wrongful birth” lawsuits.
Even assuming all diagnoses are correct, exactly who are we eradicating from our planet?
NBC News points to studies showing the following:99% of people with Down syndrome are happy with their lives.97% of people with Down syndrome like who they are.96% of people with Down syndrome like how they look.Statically the vast majority of people with Down syndrome are happy, satisfied, and affectionate members of society—something that couldn’t be said of people born without the disability.
