Abortions of Disabled Babies at All-Time High in Scotland

(Christian Institute) A pro-life group has called on the Scottish government to do more to protect the unborn after new figures revealed an all-time high in abortions of disabled babies in Scotland.

The figures released by the NHS in Scotland found there were 216 abortions because of disability in 2016, a 57 per cent rise from the 2011 figure of 136.

John Deighan, CEO of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children Scotland, said: “In Scotland, we rightly go to great lengths to accommodate people with a disability, yet as a society we are eradicating them before they are born, thus sending a bleak message to our disability community.”

    yep … evolution being played out ….. go after the weakest members ….. those least able to defend themselves ……. cut them off …… mostly because “they provide nothing to society and are a drain on the resources of the others. They are just useless eaters.” ……………. /SMH ……….

      Evolution was the first thing I thought when I read the headline. In China, parents will get an abortion if the child is not the desired gender. If doctors come up with a genetic test that will tell if a child will have a low I.Q., will parents get abortions for low I.Q.? It’s a troubling trend.

        i agree …….

        It’s not a trend. Pagans never really consider children as equal humans. That’s why they abort many female babies. Sanctity of all human life is exclusively a Judeo-Christen concept. De-christianized Scotland is behaving like raw humanity and that’s all.

    Hitler’s eugenics program is alive and well.

    The Third Reich principle – “life not worthy of life.” Amazing what you can get away with once you dehumanize others.

      Humanism’s dead-end.

    So sad. Scotland was once before a Christendom. Humanism kills. Scots need Christian faith to be saved.
