Proof that not every star in Hollywood toes the liberal line: When CBS News hailed Iceland for virtually eliminating Down Syndrome through a combination of prenatal screening and aborting every Down Syndrome baby, actress Patricia Heaton of “The Middle” tweeted back, “Iceland isn’t actually eliminating Down Syndrome. They’re just killing everybody that has it. Big difference.” She’s right, that horrifying “improving the race by eliminating inferior people” idea used to be called eugenics, and abortion rights pioneer Margaret Sanger was quite a fan. I guess some things never change.
Sadly, the people who most need to hear Ms Heaton’s message probably won’t be able to grasp it. They’ve very lucky there isn’t a prenatal test for moral blindness or they might not even be here.
