An Immoral Choice?

I'm feeling very passionate right now, but I'll try to restrain myself and write sensibly. 

Last week, a man with a lot of followers tweeted that it is immoral to choose to have a baby with Down syndrome.  I can't even speak his name and I won't give him the glory of doing so. 

Immoral. 

Unethical.  Depraved.  Corrupt.  Nefarious.  Shameless.  Sinful. 

Sinful?

How can it be sinful to choose life?  Any life, regardless of diagnosis? 

I know of people who refuse to kill spiders or flies, who prefer to catch them and release them outside.  And this guy, he wants us to kill babies?  And that's a more moral choice? 

I could quote a lot of Bible verses about sin and also about the value of life.  I could present scientific studies about the quality of life that Cade can expect to have.  I could write thousands of words about morality and ethics. 

Instead, I'll pose just this question...is this sinful?

  1. Perfect pictures!! The only thing sinful is that they are sinfully cute!! And I feel sorry for that man (he who must not be named). He's the one missing out.
