Charlie Gard, A Person. Not A Poster Child for the Pro-Life Bunch

Leave it to the American right-wing to make an issue out of a poor child for whom they would have no regard had he survived.

Here is what Nevada Republican, Crescent Hardy, said about children with disabilities:

“”I had three children: One was summa cum laude and two were magnum cum laude, and the other didn’t need an education, he works for Raytheon and is smarter than all the rest because he works hard. He builds things that are genius, and some people have that ability and I’m grateful [inaudible] I don’t know where that came from. But they all work hard. They’re raising their own families. They’re doing their own thing. They will not be a drain on society, the best they can. Hopefully they never have some disability that causes them to have to utilize that.”

So, these religious organizations can get lost with their fake sympathy, because they have no regard for children with disabilities.

No, I haven’t stated that at all.  Pay attention.  What I’ve stated is that if a conservative is going to ‘fight for life,’ it might be a good idea to read 1 John 3:17-18, so as to put their words into action.

As for Charlie, I feel for him.  This planet is a horrible place to live, but at least he will never know the phony anguish some have displayed, as the right-to-life crowd simply used him to score political points.

Maybe they should be more concerned about helping kids with developmental disabilities live fulfilling lives.  As far as drains on society are concerned, go see an Iraq War vet who didn’t pay attention to the road during that quagmire.

Charlie didn’t choose to live with mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, but that American child rapist who caused a lot of carnage in Haditha chose to fight a war against a nation which never attacked the United States.

Help kids like Charlie.  As for the idiot who wore khaki camouflage, he can take a flying leap for not paying attention to world affairs when he was in high school and for not paying attention to the road when he played war in the desert.
