mr. dawkins and definitions.

This week on Twitter InYourFaceNewYorker said:

I honestly don’t know what I would do if I were pregnant with a kid with Down Syndrome. Real ethical dilemma.”

And Richard Dawkins replied with this:

Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice.”

  1. Thank you for your beautiful thoughts! So perfectly worded. (I snickered out loud at “I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that a child's welfare is not best served if the child is dead.”)


  2. This was beautifully written and so very true! I was wondering if I could post the link to my Facebook? Its totally if not just would love to have others read your words.


  3. Your analysis is simply AMAZING! Beautiful worded without personal condemnation, just a refutation of his position.


  4. Thank you so much! I had a very difficult time with this one…I am so glad for your encouraging words, I had to work very hard to not come across as an angry mama, because my initial reaction is fury, which just isn't going to work well if I need to disprove someone else's point. But, it was just hard.
