A Nonviable – Words Matter
From the website Jezebal great title, feminist website. It's a good website, btw, and has many well written and thought provoking articles.
However, this particular article by Katie JM Baker upset me. But not until the last paragraph: "So many mistreated babies and kids with Downs live terrible lives. Instead of throwing resources at a nonviable fetus, why can't the church help children with Down syndrome that are already alive? Because anti-abortion folks care more about fetuses with fairytale narratives than actual babies."
I had to stare at it awhile and then, dare I respond?
OK. I did -
Did you really just say that Down syndrome makes a person "Nonviable?"
