Support banning life saving surgeries and medicines as to promote only strong and healthy offspring free of bad genes.
This is a great topic. The mentally handicapped are a burden on society and their families. We are a compassionate and empathetic society, so we want to keep everyone, no matter how bad their disability. But all animals get rid of their defective offspring, recognizing the burden it places on them.
The trouble with humans is that there can always be corruption and any program can be used for devious purposes…
You do realize that every society before more modern times would not keep a physically or mentally handicapped child (few cases where some families would keep them). Most would kill them by leaving them on a mountain which was common practice in the old days. The difference is that as society changed so did our ethical codes as leaving physically or mentally handicapped children on a mountain is no longer acceptable, but even today it still happens were people abandon babies for different reasons.
Comparing us to animals isn’t fair comparison as animals don’t possess much (or any) higher thinking to ponder if it is ethical they just run off instincts mostly. If we went back to caveman days then we would do the same as them as it comes down to who is fit to survive.
