HuffPost Columnist: Netherlands Pushing “A Moral Duty To Abort” Down Syndrome Babies

First Iceland, now the Netherlands? Renate Lindeman, the organizer behind DownPride and the mother of two Down Syndrome daughters, accuses the country’s medical industry and government of pressuring mothers to abort their Down Syndrome babies after prenatal testing provides that diagnosis. Lindeman writes that the government is spreading misleading information on Down health costs in order to incentivize abortions and to implement what is essentially a eugenics program.

    Canada’s own St. Commie Douglas would approve.

    Remember, the core doctrine of social liberalism is “don’t moralize.” But, as soon as they get power, you have moral duties to abort, bake the cake, use the pronoun, etc.

      Remember, Eugenics came from the Left, not the Right.

    I have witnessed personally people with down syndrome live productive lives by being able to hold a job. Sure it wasn’t a highly skilled job (staples store associate) but at least they are able to function relatively normally to the point were they are able to contribute to society. Meanwhile these same countries important hundreds of thousands of migrants from the Islamic world only for them to collect welfare and commit criminal acts. The wrong people are getting killed off!

    Hmmm economic costs. Where have I come across this? O yeah the Nazi hygene laws. So why don’t these scum stop pussyfooting and just republish that crap. Be forthright about how much you hate life

    Socialism is just another word for fascism.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      That’s right, fascism is nationalist socialism. As opposed to internationalist socialism.

        Wouldn’t international socialism, aka globalism just be marxism in the flesh?
        nazi or marxist they both lead to the same result – death, war, famine, poverty. Any adherents to either ideology need to be housed in a mental asylum to protect the rest of us who enjoy freedom safe.

    Next up. Color blindness and a genetic propensity for single malt.

    As some day it may happen that a victim must be found
    I’ve got a little list – I’ve got a little list
    Of society offenders who might well be underground
    And who never would be missed – who never would be missed!
    There’s the pestilential nuisances who write for autographs
    All people who have flabby hands and irritating laughs
    All children who are up in dates, and floor you with ’em flat
    All persons who in shaking hands, shake hands with you like that
    And all third persons who on spoiling tête-à-têtes insist
    They’d none of ’em be missed – they’d none of ’em be missed!

  • We should never have saved that country from the Nazis.

    • Bla Bla

      Indeed – all that blood and treasure so that in about 60 short years their population, and subsequently, political leadership embrace the same ideas as the nazis – but call it ‘progressive’.

    I have a better idea – abort huffpost columnists.
