The news is “Iceland Has Nearly Eliminated Down Syndrome–Through Abortion“.
…Iceland — through the use of abortion — apparently is on the brink of completely eradicating the disorder from their society or at least killing off all the unborn children with the condition.
Turns out “Icelandic law permits abortion after 16 weeks (4 months) only if the fetus is deformed”, and having Downs counts as “deformed.”
Said Helga Sol Olafsdottir, a Landspitali University Hospital counselor, “We don’t look at abortion as a murder. We look at it as a thing that we ended.”
Many “things” are being ended in Iceland.
I approve of this trend of ending useless things. Which is why I wrote, “I’m hoping they can do the same for short people. They’re always underfoot.”
Let’s face the cold, brutal truth. Short people are an annoyance. I tried playing basketball with one once, but had no fun (there being no challenge) and ended up having to scrape the guy off my shoes. Plus, given my celebrity, I’m often forced into taking “selfies” with my groupies, many of whom are short. The amount of bending over I have to do is wreaking hell on my back.
Why should I suffer these ignominies?
If you can’t go through life easily, without suffering, something is wrong. And that something wrong is short people. Short people and those who need glasses.
Answer this next question honestly: do you really want to fly with a pilot who wears glasses? His optical correctives might slip off at any moment and you could fly right into a mountain. What kind of society allows such unnecessary risks? Don’t we care about people?
It is indisputable that people who need glasses are less fit than those with perfect vision, like me. These semi-blinds are forced to live suboptimal lives as they stumble from obstacle to obstacle, knocking into the furniture and tipping over vases. This causes insurance costs to rise.
What’s far worse is that these optically defective folks often seek out one another and breed. Well, they have no choice, since the perfect-sighted prefer to stick with their own. And we all know what this indiscriminate breeding leads to. More people who need glasses.
Just consider this: wouldn’t it have been better for these people if they were never born? They would therefore never suffer. And would not cause the rest of us any grief, either. These are logical truths.
In case you think I am being facetious, it really is a logical truth that if a person will suffer a medical malady if he is born, if his birth is prevented he will not suffer the effects of the malady. And we won’t have to suffer watching him suffer.
