I’ve heard that sometimes, if parents find out that there is some deformity in their to-be-born child, or some kind of malfunction in the body, they are given the choice to abort the child. (In certain countries)
Who gives them the right to take that child’s life away even before he/she’s born? Why can’t that child LIVE??
EVEN THOUGH HE/SHE HAS A PROBLEM…. EVEN IF THERE IS A DEFORMITY, HE/SHE STILL HAS A RIGHT TO LIVE.
You cannot snatch that right away from the child and take away all his other abilities…
Maybe that deformed child CAN really make a huge difference in the world…
Maybe that specially-abled kid has a lot to give to this world…
Maybe he/she has a very bright destiny…
WHO ARE YOU TO DECIDE TO TAKE AWAY HIS/HER LIFE??? ISN’T THAT A SIN??
Today, the world has developed so much that there is a lot of information available about birth control. If you CANNOT take care of a child, don’t produce one.
But IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A CHILD, be prepared to deal with all deformities… abnormalities… or any other malfunctions in his/her body. Be prepared to LOVE YOUR CHILD, inspite of any abnormalities.
DO NOT TAKE THE CHILD’s LIFE AWAY BEFORE HE/SHE IS BORN.
I understand that it’s a blessing to have a healthy child but it’s absolutely fine to have a specially abled child too….THERE IS NO CHILD IN THIS WORLD WHO DOESNT HAVE ANY HEALTH ISSUE….. Humans are MORTAL…. Everyone is bound to have issues and die one day…
LET LIFE FLOURISH…. inspite of any deformities…..
There are thousands of examples of how specially abled children have MADE a difference in this world…
