    It seems Eugenics has been making a comeback in the past couple of decades, to the point where a mother allowing her athlete son to live has become controversial and now Sarah Palin, simply by allowing her child to be born, has also become a controversial figure. And instead of holding her son in her arms in public it should be hidden from view.

    We get the message. Babies with Downs Syndrome should not be allowed to live. Who else?

    And who's next?
    Where did you people go to school?

    So then you are for abortion with positive genetic testing.

    Probably somewhere education occurs.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    There is a waiting list for adopting them.

    So you'd like to see a few of us dead, would you?

    Nope. Not even close to what I have been saying. Women with an extremely high risk of having a Downs baby should be be educated so they can avoid getting pregnant.

    All women are at risk. The risk increases steadily with age. That's what women should know - the full truth of it. And so should those who second-guess their decisions.

    No, more like never born. But don't worry, you're not on the "do-not-birth" list. Yet.

    Is it really that incomprehensible?

    Hint - no.

    The way I see (especially given the risk factors at all ages) if you aren't going to be able to handle having a kid that's not perfect, you probably shouldn't have kids at all.

    A few easy questions that seem to be difficult to answer so the sophomoric repartee makes it entry.

    Your parents must have been quite advanced in years also, right?
