There is currently a case occurring in this country where a beautiful, 3-year-old, innocent child is being denied a life-saving medical procedure because, according to the child’s mother, the doctor said, “She—is—not—eligible— because—of—her—quality—of—life—Because—of—her—mental—delays.”
You can read the entire exchange from the mother here: http://www.wolfhirschhorn.org/2012/01/amelia/brick-walls/.
The family was even going to find their own donor from their large family, but the denial for the procedure persisted! The mother questioned the doctor stating, “So you mean to tell me that as a doctor, you are not recommending the transplant, and when her kidneys fail in six months to a year, you want me to let her die because she is mentally retarded? There is no other medical reason for her not to have this transplant other than she is MENTALLY RETARDED!” According to the mother the doctor responded, “Yes. This is hard for me, you know.”
This surreal encounter in the culture of death should bring an international outcry from all civilized societies of “SOCIAL INJUSTICE.” What could be more unjust than “medical professionals” charged with ensuring health deeming an innocent child guilty of having an imperfect genetic makeup and then sentencing her to inevitable death? There have been cases where a convicted individual on death row has had their death sentence thrown out, and many times this is based on DNA genetic evidence. This is awesome technology when used to prove the innocence of a wrongly accused human being.
Today “medical personnel” are using DNA genetic evidence to convict an innocent human being of being guilty of imperfection and then sentencing them to death both prenatally and postnatally as we see in this very disturbing case. Currently [more than] 90 percent of beautiful, innocent children proven prenatally by DNA evidence to have Down syndrome are given a death sentence without any chance of appeal, pardon, or escape. This is the ultimate “SOCIAL INJUSTICE,” and I am still waiting for an outcry from the “civilized” world.
All of us need to look into the mirror and ask what our sentence will be if one day a culture of death rules us to be guilty of imperfection. “To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”
– Abraham Lincoln
Kurt Kondrich is the father of a beautiful daughter who has Down syndrome and who has been a priceless blessing to his family and community. When Kurt became aware of the higher than 90 percent abortion rate for children prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome, he literally could not sleep at night. In early August 2008, he had a disturbing dream about people with disabilities being exterminated and, after praying, he came up with the name SADSIN (Stop Aborting Down Syndrome Individuals Now) for a website to defend and protect children with Down syndrome. He has since embarked on a mission to make sure people are aware of this genocide. He wants people to see the beautiful faces of our kids and realize the priceless blessings and gifts they are to a society that has lost focus.
