disappointed

I was very hopeful that the abortion laws which allows people to terminate the lives of Down’s syndrome babies would be overturned today. https://news.sky.com/story/woman-with-downs-syndrome-loses-legal-challenge-to-prevent-unborn-babies-with-disabilities-being-born-after-24-weeks-12414954

I am in no way anti-abortion – I am pro-choice for women. But losing the case today, the woman who has challenged these laws spoke of having to justify her existence. It’s extremely worrying that these are human beings who are now not equal to other human beings in the eyes of the law. They are seen as less. Why don’t people with Down’s, who are able to live full meaningful lives, have equal human rights? I don’t understand it. And I am sad about this today. Keep fighting girl.
