One of America’s largest newspapers echoed the deadly eugenic philosophy of the 1930s on its opinion page Friday.
“I would’ve aborted a fetus with Down syndrome,” read the headline on deputy editorial page editor Ruth Marcus’s piece. “Women need that right.”
Marcus acknowledged the dangerous implications of her pro-abortion position. She said women have the “right to choose” abortion without restriction, and, as prenatal testing improves, women may choose to abort unborn babies simply because of a low IQ, sex, eye color or height.
But even these disgusting implications were not enough to sway her. In her mind, women should have the ultimate power to choose life or death for their unborn child for any reason, and nothing should get in the way of it.
