Got a cleft lip? Tough! Get “terminated!

06Jul11

In Britain, in the past nine years, twenty-six abortions were performed , by doctors, on women who were pregnant with fetuses who had cleft lips or cleft palates.. In addition, between 2002 and 2010 there were almost 18,000 abortions performed on the grounds that here was a “substantial risk”  that the babies would be handicapped, in some form or another.

Cleft lips and palates are correctable by surgery, by the way.

Does one get the whiff of Nazi eugenics here?  Guess there is no quick surgery for parents born without hearts or without bravery.
