... and then there's sanctimonious fetus fetishist SUZANNE:
Personally, I find eugenics repugnant. But the elimination of “undesirables” is done everyday in this country– through abortion. 85-90% of Down Syndrome’s fetuses are aborted. People refuse to parent children who are genetically undesirable.
Quite so, SUZANNE ... because only conservatives have the self-sacrificing nobility to nobly self-sacrifice for the damaged children. Oh, wait ... no, they don't:
Consider, too, that the children currently available for adoption in Canada are disproportionately burdened with problems of one kind or another. Many suffer from physical problems such as fetal alcohol syndrome. Many are toddlers, or even older children, not infants, who have been seized from abusive homes by Children’s Aid Societies and made wards of the state by the courts. Would-be parents may be unwilling to take on the extra challenges that such children pose, but would happily take on the care of an uninjured, pre-born baby without undesirable psychological baggage.
If that intelligence-based eugenics program ever came to pass, SUZANNE should be the first one in line never allowed to have children again. But I'm guessing you didn't need me to explain that.
HOLY FUCK, the overwhelming irony.
