Richard Dawkins: It’s Immoral Not To Abort Downs Syndrome Children

young-boyRichard Dawkins—that atheist who wrote that book on atheism—is now “seen by many, even many non-believers, as a joke figure, shaking his fist at sky fairies. He’s the Mary Whitehouse of our day.” [1]

Despite his waning popularity (or because of it), he seems intent on remaining in the public eye. His strategy seems to be to say as much stupid and insulting crap as possible. He is succeeding in this strategy.

His latest doozy? Telling one of his female twitter  followers that if she was to discover her baby had Downs Syndrome, it would be immoral for her not to abort it.

[1] “Richard Dawkins has lost: meet the new new atheists”,

[2] “[I]sn’t it always a form of child abuse to label children as possessors of beliefs that they are too young to have thought about? Yet the practice continues to this day, almost entirely unquestioned.” (From that book on atheist, pg. 315).
