My friend muses:
So I was watching the kids out doing the Shinerama today, raising money for cystic fibrosis research when it dawned on me. They are raising money for this cause, to find a cure for an awful disease, while also supporting strongly the death of such children before they are born through their student governments and unfettered access to abortion. CF rates fell from 1/2714 before pre-natal genetic testing to 1/3608 in 2000. It could be even lower now.
I’m grateful to disability rights folks for raising these points–it’s incumbent on the rest of us to connect the dots between abortion and the effects it has on the differently-abled around us. Or not around us, as the case is more and more.
