This weekend, Florida practitioner Matthew Kachinas lost his license for medical mishaps, including killing the wrong twin in a “selective reduction” abortion.

Kachinas had been contracted to eliminate a Down syndrome twin boy and leave the “normal” girl twin, but he injected poison into the wrong twin. Within a week the “parents” aborted the remaining, originally- targeted twin.

The pregnancy had been the result of in-vitro fertilization with an egg donor and much could be said about the sad state of objectifying children and ordering them up from a technology-assisted menu.

ABC reported Monday at length that Down syndrome births drop as more women abort :
An estimated 92 percent of all women who receive a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome choose to terminate their pregnancies… without knowing what it’s like to raise a child with Down syndrome… according to research reviewed by Dr. Brian Skotko, a pediatric geneticist at Children’s Hospital Boston. …  ‘Are they making [abortion decisions] on facts and up-to-date information? Research suggests not, and that mothers get inaccurate, incomplete and sometimes offensive information.’ ”

This cultural pressure to eradicate certain children was specifically addressed by the 2008 Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act authored by U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback to improve  (more…)
