An Oregon couple recently won a $2.9 million "wrongful birth" lawsuit against a healthcare provider. The reason? Their daughter has Down's Syndrome and, the couple testified in court, they would have aborted her if they had been told during prenatal screenings.
I honestly don't have the capacity to comprehend just how depraved this argument is. The parents insist that they love the child but then, within the framework of the same convoluted argument, insist they would have taken her life in the womb if only they knew that she would be mentally handicapped. Just... plain... wrong.
On the bright side, the beauty of life is still recognized and celebrated by many. Just take a look at the video below and thank God for the gift of life and selfless families!
This video is just... so... right!
