If you think that’s a tasteless suggestion, you should have read what Richard “The Dick” Dawkins tweeted about Down’s Syndrome children:
In a bizarre rant on Twitter earlier today, atheist Richard Dawkins wrote that choosing not to abort a child with Down Syndrome would be "immoral."BLARG! Excuse me! I just threw up a little in my mouth.
The conversation started when Dawkins tweeted that "Ireland is a civilised country except in this 1 area." The area was abortion, which until last year was illegal in all cases.
A Twitter user then asked Dawkins if "994 human beings with Down's Syndrome [having been] deliberately killed before birth in England and Wales in 2012" was "civilised."
Dawkins replied "yes, it is very civilised. These are fetuses, diagnosed before they have human feelings."
Later, Dawkins said that "the question is not ‘is it 'human'?’ but ‘can it SUFFER?’"
In perhaps the most shocking moment, one Twitter user wrote that he or she "honestly [doesn't] know what I would do if I were pregnant with a kid with Down Syndrome. Real ethical dilemma."
Dawkins advised the writer to "abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice."
Is it wrong to say Dawkins hates people with Down’s Syndrome? He may not outright hate them, but he clearly considers them less worthy of life than other human beings. Seriously, freak this man!
The tasteful irony here is that many of his pro-choice atheist sycophants are chewing him up over these tweets. I’m not sure why. His comments are perfectly consistent with their twisted ideology.
After all, if human beings were not created in the image of a loving God, then what value do their lives have other than what other human beings give them?
And if a woman truly has the unadulterated right to kill her unborn child, then she has every right to kill it for whatever reason she wants, even if that reason is grossly ableist. (Damn it, Dawkins, you’re making me use SJW speak!)
