British Scientist Says Parents Should Abort Disabled Children

Bob Edwards, the scientist who created Great Britain’s first in vitro fertilization baby gave a speech at a fertility conference where he said:

“Soon it will be a sin if parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children.”

Sunday Times (London) July 4, 1999 as reported in American Feminist, winter 1999 – 2000

Edwards puts forth the argument that couples who discover that their unborn babies have a genetic disorder or disease should not give birth to those children.
