I’m sure Ronan would be happy to know his mom would rather have him dead.
There’s this thing called genetic counseling, Ms. Rapp.
Funny, that’s probably what her mother said about her.
As a point of information, ..... While anyone can be a carrier of Tay-Sachs, the incidence of the disease is significantly higher among people of eastern European (Ashkenazi) Jewish descent. Approximately one in every 27 Jews in the United States is a carrier of the Tay-Sachs disease gene.
Essentially, this mother would prefer to disinherit her heritage. I have the greatest respect for the Jews. They are proud of their heritage and tradition. More importantly, they cherish their heritage, both good and bad. This woman should devote more time to embracing the "gift" she has received from God, rather than regretting it.
Regardless of the fact that none of the doctors warnings had any truth to them, it would have been her choice to make, she wrote.
She wishes that she had killed her son and she wishes that her mother had killed her. The Culture of Death.
Wait, she also says her own mother (the grandmother) probably wished she could have aborted her, as well!
Some people thrive on being outrageous to gain attention, this author is one of those people.
Essentially she is totally full of crap, or sometimes a dramatist like her believes their own crapola. What difference does it make? Neither mother aborted their child but it makes for an outlandish article.
I wonder if the person who was to discover a way to eliminate this horrible gene was aborted.
Sorry lady, that's a sick view of the world and it tells your son, who if he lives long enough to read your words one day, that you really do not value his life or existance in this world. That you would rather have him dead, than have him, despite his suffering, have the chance to fight through and live.
You should think a whole lot more before you write, Emily, in support of what is becoming the worst Holocaust in History.
THE ABORTION HOLOCAUST - [Warning: Graphic Photo]
Its all about her and how she has to face to pain of her son dying. Even his pain is to much for HER to endure?
Otherwise, is she saying she wouldn’t have blamed her mother for aborting her if her mother would have known her daughter had a condition that required her to lose a leg?
When the nazis came to power in 1933 the one of their first acts they committed was to issue anti disability propaganda to the public, the nazis claimed that the existence of disabled people weakened societies ability to operate efficiently and that the social and economic problems that germany had suffered during the 1920s and 1930s were partly caused by the burden of supporting disabled people. The nazis stated that the life of mentally impaired and severely disabled were living a life unworthy of living.
The Nazis used posters that showed images of disabled people with captions such as DEFORMED and various others to gain support from the german public, later the nazis made a film which was purely propaganda depicting a husband carrying out a so called mercy killing
on his wife and then using the harsh and twisted nazi arguments to justify why he committed this criminal act of murder upon his wife.
In July 1933 the Nazis passed a law for the prevention of progeny with hereditary disease which ordered the forced sterilizations of all people with conditions the nazis considered hereditary disease and these included:

I’m wondering Emily Rapp’s mom is mad that she didn’t abort Emily when she had the chance, if she knew she was giving birth to such a cold heartless bitch...
She would sooner have never seen her child’s face and held him in her arms???? Life is not worth living unless you get a long one?
Karen Santorum is in such a different league than people like this. The birth and death of their son changed the Santorums in ways that will not creep into the bitter soul of this woman.
She is the carrier.. perhaps she should off herself.
Is this typical left-wing drivel, or what? Unbelievable.
Godless generation !
Wouldn’t it have been smarter for the mother and father to have been tested for Tay-Sachs markers before pro-creating?
What a beautiful child. I couldn’t read much of the story because it’s difficult to read when I’m crying. I will say this, that I can only imagine how painful it must be for this woman to see her child suffer. She is wrong, but I feel very sorry for her and her son. I hope that she can find God and in so doing, find peace and acceptance.
I challenge her to look him in the eyes and tell him that instead of “confessing” to a sympathetic liberal rag.
