Doctor Advocates Aborting Imperfect Babies

Some prominent doctors cannot understand why women do not abort their handicapped children. Dr. Cecil B. Jacobson, Chief of the Reproductive Genetics Unit of George Washington University Hospital:

“I can’t imagine any reasonably responsible person arguing against the abortion of mongols [down syndrome babies]… If we could tell what fetuses are going to be affected with cancer in their 40s and 50s, I would be for aborting them now.”

Cecil B. Jacobson, Chief, Reproductive Genetics Unit, George Washington University Hospital, Washington, D.C. Psychology Today, September 1975, page 22.
