does this man ever shut the hell up
God i hate to say this but, he’s actually correct in a sense, when it comes to evolution. If we want our species to continue to progress eliminating children with handicaps would make us a “healthier” species.
"hey look, not to be mean or anything, but we should probably have a down’s syndrome holocaust to make everything okay with the world" are you fucking hearing yourself
Pro-tip: Getting rid of disabled people won’t actually make the world a better place, because what’s wrong with humanity isn’t the fact that sickness and mortality exist. And pretending that it is, is just a deadly invincibility fantasy.
And attributing your attitude toward ‘evolution’ doesn’t make it objective, because evolution is a value neutral force of nature. Evolution doesn’t care about creating ideal life forms, it doesn’t care about anything, it just is. Whereas deciding certain people deserve life less than other people is a value, and aborting disabled babies is a choice.
Ok, referenced article first: http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/s-syndrome-babies-aborted-birth-says-Richard/story-22790505-detail/story.html
cliterallyinsane’s comment make no sense because that’s doesn’t have anything to to with Down’s Syndrome. It’s due to a overexpression of genes (extra copies), not a defect of them. Aborting in this case does nothing to make a population healthier.
No, it would have to be sterilization of the parents to achieve that. Or less nice options.
…I do wish the guy would get off social mediums where its so easy to make a story about him.
