Ironically that abortion should be allowed when if

Ironically is an adverb defined as in an ironic manner or used to
denote a paradoxical, unexpected, or coincidental situation. Which is exactly
how I felt seeing how just a few days ago I chose a specific article from Fox News
for a current event assignment that just happened to be about a twitter account that used a disabled
girl’s photo to promote abortion and how now Twitter is now being urged to
tighten its hate speech reporting standards to openly include tweets attacking
people with disabilities and now I’m writing a paper about the arguments against abortion of fetuses with
disabilities its crazy to see the different argument for and against something
such and abortions using people with disabilities for both arguments its seems
to contradict each other though in this part of the paper I will be diving into
the reasons why you should not abort fetuses that may be born with disabilities
 Some ethicists are not for
the argument that abortion should be allowed when if the baby is born it would
suffer from physical or mental disabilities.
Basically, allowing
disability to be a motive for abortion proposes that people with disabilities,
or the lives of disabled people, are less worthy than the lives of
“normal” people. Which in my and so many others opinion is untrue,
its offensive to anyone with a disability, and will make disabled people feel
unvalued. According to most people with disabilities say that
they would much rather be alive than have been killed in the womb and allowing
abortion on the grounds of disability consequently prevents the choice of the
individual concerned. Permitting abortion of a fetus with a
disability authorizes eugenic abortion, which
defines as an abortion to eliminate disabling genes from the human race. Selective
abortions occur in cases where a particular fetus is perceived as having
undesirable characteristics. Selective abortion is also done when there are too
many fetuses in a pregnancy. Advances
in the field of medical genetics have only relatively recently made it possible
to detect abnormalities in a fetus through prenatal genetic diagnosis: it has
been possible to detect chromosomal abnormalities like Down syndrome through the
sampling of amniotic fluid, or amniocentesis, only since the 1960s. Prior to that time, the only possible way to identify a
hereditary birth defect was after an affected individual had already been born
and the only available solution for preventing subsequent recurrences of the
defect was simply to stop having children. CBS News ran a report on Down
syndrome in Iceland, nearly 100 percent of women who found out their fetuses
probably had the chromosomal abnormality terminated their pregnancies. Only one
or two babies are born with Down syndrome each year, usually to women who got
an inaccurate test or were one of the 15 percent or so who opt not to be
screened. The U.S. rate of Down syndrome births is three to six times higher. The
choice to end a pregnancy of a child believed to be ‘defective’ is morally challenging.
So, at this point you have to ask yourself a few questions such as if you were
to deliver a baby with a disability would you kill it after it was born? or if
all of your pregnancies had a chance of having a fetus with a disability would
you never give birth? Aborting babies that may have a disability is only
hurting us as a race and probably you as a person people with disabilities can
do anything that anyone else can do it may be harder and it may take longer but
there is always a way you never know who that child can be they may be the
person to change the world and make it a better place. Even if you aren’t the
person that helps them through life someone else may be able to help them get
to where they need to be. All anyone needs is a chance.
