I just can’t do it yet…

Can I be honest? I haven’t read all the articles this week. You know the ones….Australia, Iceland.

Let’s wipe out all the babies with Down syndrome and then pat ourselves on the back.

Those articles.

I just haven’t had the heart to read it all yet. I plan to.

But I know the disgust that will come with the reading.

I’ve seen enough posts to know that I probably already know what they all say.

Friends, the world is not a safe place for my children. Yours either.

The world is not a safe place for “different”.

That becomes more and more obvious each day.

How about this quote from one article I skimmed….

“We don’t look at abortion as a murder. We look at it as a thing that we ended. We ended a possible life that may have had a huge complication… preventing suffering for the child and for the family. And I think that is more right than seeing it as a murder — that’s so black and white. Life isn’t black and white. Life is grey.”

Disgust.

No other words.

I want to read all that my friends have written this week.

I want to go back and read all the articles.

Then, maybe, if I can stomach it, I can share more.

You and I need to talk about these things.

Lay it out on the table.

Shout from the rooftops about it.

Many of you have no clue what I’m talking about.

That’s part of the problem.

We have to do a better job of making sure you know.
