Europeans Proud to Abort Down’s Syndrome Babies

Europeans Proud to Abort Down’s Syndrome Babies

“In other words, if you’re looking for good vibes Denmark is obviously the place to find them. Unless, that is, you’re the expecting parent of, or an unborn child diagnosed with, Down syndrome. Then all that good will is directed toward aborting your unborn child in the pursuit of eradicating Down syndrome:

Back in 2015,  CPH Post (formerly  The Copenhagen Post), Denmark’s only English-language newspaper,  ran a piece with the headline“Down’s Syndrome heading for extinction in Denmark.”

This must rank as one of the most misleading headlines in history. If you didn’t know better, you would think that Denmark’s doctors had found a cure for Down’s Syndrome. Except they haven’t. What they have in fact done is not made Down’s Syndrome almost extinct, but rather people with Down’s Syndrome. The headline should have read: “People with Down’s Syndrome heading for extinction in Denmark”.”
