Juxtapose these two stories. The first being that of a British TV star who could be jailed because a “Down” baby squeaked by and was born, thus avoiding abortion, and should be “put down” against a Jonathan Gruber clip who testifies in support of the Obamacare “Death Panels” and abortion. He terms it “positive selection.” Here we go:
A BBC reality TV star could be jailed for posting on Facebook that children born with Down’s Syndrome should be ‘put down’.
Ursula Presgrave – who appeared on BBC3’s The Call Centre – was taken to court after saying disabled children should be killed instead of living the ‘pointless life of a vegetable’.
The 23-year-old pleaded guilty to an offence under the Malicious Communications act and now faces a maximum sentence of six months in jail or a £5,000 fine.
Presgrave, who was known on the BBC show for her tattoos, piercings and foul language, told Facebook followers: ‘Anyone born with down syndrome should be put down, it’s just cruel to let them lead a pointless life of a vegetable.’
The call centre worker, who appeared alongside Nev Wilshire in the BBC Three fly-on-the-wall series, was arrested after police also found photos joking about the disabled on her phone, Swansea Magistrates’ Court heard. Keep Reading…
Here is a previous post Obamacare Gruber: ‘Abortion of marginal children’ a ‘social good’ UPDATE December 8, 2014
Embattled MIT professor Jonathan Gruber has not only gotten in trouble for bragging about helping President Obama put one over on the American people with Obamacare, he’s also been uncovered as an abortion advocate—but not a run-of-the-mill advocate of “women’s rights.”
No, Gruber’s abortion advocacy is of a particularly pungent eugenics variety. He’s on record repeatedly making the case from social science that abortion is a “social good” because it reduces the number of “marginal children,” by which he means urban poor—those he says can be counted on to commit crimes if they were ever born.
Gruber co-authored a paper during the Clinton years which argued that legal abortion had saved the U.S. taxpayer upwards of $14 billion in welfare benefits and that it also lowered crime.
