You know what? I don't condemn her either way. Looking after a disabled person is fucking HARD. I've done it.At this degree of disability,who the fuck is benefitting? They're both existing, not living. If the disability was caught in utero or shortly after birth, the child should have been quietly & mercifully let go. I don't condone eugenics or killng disabled people, but this attitude of 'life at any cost' is ridiculous. Sometimes death IS a better option.
