'You really should not have that viewpoint'

A man with autism at the Virginia March for Life made an impassioned plea for not aborting unborn babies just because they have disabilities.

The man noted that though "we are getting better at detecting disabilities" before children are born that should not be a reason to end someone's life before it begins.

"Basically, I'm trying to encourage people to not abort children with disabilities," he told the Daily Caller while marching.

"A lot of people think, 'Oh, they'll have disabilities, their life is going to suck, and it will be terrible,' ... [but] you really should not have that viewpoint — I am learning, it is possible to have a happy life as a person with disabilities," he argued.

"You know people with disabilities are often portrayed as freaks, loners, and losers who have no friends. But that's not what has happened to me at all," he added.

Aborting unborn babies with disabilities has become a recent talking point for some on the left, who argue that terminating the life of a disabled child before birth could be seen as compassionate.

Some progressive countries have even put their so-called compassion into practice. In 2017, CBS News reported that Iceland was on pace to "virtually eliminate" Down syndrome in the country — by aborting all the unborn babies who had it.

Discussing pushback against a 2019 law in Indiana that would prohibit abortions based on disability, Glenn Beck illustrated how the strategy is about as compassionate as Nazi-style population control.
