I can’t explain why we shouldn’t murder disabled children

HT for this blog to my friend and brother, Jason Longstreth, who says: “As the parent of a child with Down Syndrome, I have become more and more alarmed at the efforts to eliminate these children from our society by aborting them in the womb and/or performing “mercy killings” while they are still children (in Europe). Every one of my children was created by our Father. They are neither defective nor are they mistakes, for they were fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) Remember the Lord’s statement to Moses, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes him mute or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?” (Exodus 4:11) They are made in the image of God.”
