The Quiet Part of Abortion Is Said Out Loud
Eugenics thinking is not a bug of the pro-abortion movement. It is a feature.

At a recent town hall meeting in Framingham, Massachusetts, Democratic committee chair Michael Hugo, while attempting to discredit local crisis pregnancy centers, spoke a bit too plainly about the concerns of pro-abortion lawmakers:
Our fear is that if an unqualified sonographer misdiagnoses a heart defect, an organ defect, spina bifida or an encephalopathic defect, that becomes a very local issue, because our school budget will have to absorb the cost of a child in special education, supplying lots and lots of special services.
After a swift backlash, including from parents of children with disabilities, Hugo and the local Democratic committee issued an apology. But make no mistake. This kind of eugenics thinking is not a bug of the pro-abortion movement. It is a feature. In fact, it always has been.
Abortion always assumes that children who are not wanted are not valuable. Reducing people to a line item in a budget makes them easier to eliminate.
