Skip to comments.NBC's Snyderman: It's 'Pro-Science' to Abort Children With Genetic Defects
Posted on 06/08/2012 8:18:53 PM PDT by chessplayer
On Friday's NBC Today, chief MEDICAL editor Nancy Snyderman explained to viewers that it's just good science to abort an unborn child that may have a genetic disorder, explaining that testing for such conditions, "gives parents a chance to decide whether they're going to continue that pregnancy or not. This is the science of today." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]
Snyderman then predicted: "I think the future will be such that you'll find out that your child may have a genetic hit. You can fix that genetic problem, and improve your chance, a child's chance..." When co-host Savannah Guthrie raised ethical questions about aborting children under such circumstances, Snyderman matter-of-factly replied: "Well, I'm pro-science, so I believe that this is a great way to prevent diseases."
Why is it that lock-step loony left wing moonbats ALWAYS try to justify their murderous nonsense with “science”?
Case in fact: Bloomers in NY wants to stop “obesity” by curbing how much soda you can drink at a sitting. His rational? Obesity costs the taxpayer money in shared medical costs, he says. Well, golly gee whop!
I.e. PUBLIC FREAKIN BURDEN!!
Well now, as a biker who fought the helmet fight, let me tell you, you want to talk PUBLIC FEAKN BURDEN? LET’S TALK EFFING AIDS!!
Aids is a FOR REAL public burden. Its costs to the health care system are WELL KNOWN, its root cause is completely understood; unhinged, irrational, senseless and selfish behavior.
Until the nannycrats force ALL HOMOS WHO ENGAGE IN THEIR DESTRUCTIVE LIFESTYLE TO WEAR THEIR EFFING HELMETS BEFORE THEY “DIVE IN”, don’t tell me how to effing live, how to ride a motorcycle without my “helmet”, what to drink, what not to drink, what to smoke etc. etc. etc.
These people are COWARDS OF THE WORST SORT. Go begger the queers for their lean on the “public burden”, after that, I might just listen to you.
The very first beginning of The Holocaust was a National Socialist program called “The T4 Action”, and it was run by physicians who decided whether the individual’s life was “worth living”. If not, the crippled, mentally ill, “retarded”, and so forth were killed, at first by lethal injection or starvation but later in gas chambers disguised as showers. I’ll re-emphasize that the program was run by physicians as part of the National Socialist health care system. It “euthanized” over 100,000 humans before they started in on Jews and Poles.
The very first beneficiary of this “Biology in Life” effort was a young boy.
All quite scientific and rationalized.
We seem to be starting T4 even earlier, before the child is born. A related story is the one in which over 3800 genetic problems can be determined based on samples of the mother’s blood and father’s buccal DNA sample.
Yes, it was a science rant, just a little misplaced.
Using “science” to justify the killing of an unborn child is just as stupid as Bloombutts war on soda.
It makes no sense whatsoever.
You mean like being the wrong race or the wrong gender?
I remember reading about this. All statists and collectivists think the same.
As for you, of course you know, the “bureauKaRat” so called “scientist” knows much better than YOU who is fit to live and who is not.
Pedestrian prol you are. /s>
I found it- the name of the very first victim of the T4 Euthanasia Action, the first victim of the Holocaust, five month old Gerhard Kretschmar.
This is just wrong.
I know of two instances in my own circle of friends in which their inutero babies were diagnosed with deformaties due to sonograms.. Both mothers refused to abort.
In one case, the baby was determined to have no arms. Surprise, not only did he have arms, he has a baseball scholarship to a very good college.
In the other, the mother was assured the baby would be born dead. Surprise, he is a 6 foot 6 inch tall pediatric nurse today.
Go figure how reliable these tests are. And..in any case, it’s your kid, no matter what.
The NSDAP is far wiser than I, you are correct! /s
He had a NAME: Gerhard Kretschmar.
He had a life.
He was murdered by socialists.
Communism (socialism) and those who practice it are Satan’s own spawn. They are the soul of Nimrod come to rebuild the Tower of Babel.
Nimrod, taker of men’s souls.
Yes, I find it to be quite moving to put a name on the Holocaust’s first victim.
Correct. Hitler was only part of the Eugenics wave:
Recommended film, Homo Sapiens 1900:
We might want to consult God on this.
Wasn’t Margaret Sanger a major mover and shaker in that movement?
Didn’t Hitler like her work and invite her to Berlin?
Or is that all right wing propaganda?
Inquiring minds would like to know! /s>
Years ago, I had a then-girlfriend who saw Dr. Snyderman regularly as her regular physician. Even back then, the doctor had made very clear her pro-abortion views.
Unfortunately, shortly after that, Dr. Snyderman started her gig as a medical correspondent on a TV station in the San Francisco Bay Area and eventually went national.
Limbs? frueian slip?
Limbs? Freudian slip?
Yep. What are these people going to do when we can detect the ‘gay’ gene or the ‘liberal’ gene? Abortion might not be so fun then.
What kind of hubris makes these people believe they would have survived the abortion filter if their parents had information about how they were going to turn out and abortion was truly guilt free? Heck if most parents were shown video of what their babe in the womb would be as a teenager not many would survive.
Life’s lottery worked the opposite for my family. Our daughter’s prenatal tests showed no abnormality, but our grandson was born with a severe form of spina bifida. Surgery on his first day of life closed the hole in his back.
His legs were motionless the first year. He pulled himself along the floor with his elbows, or rolled to get around, a smile always on his face. By two he could crawl on all fours. He took a few halting steps in a walker at three. Last month, nearly four, he pulled himself to standing, then climbed the stairway on his hands and knees.
Some year down the road he will be able to walk. He is lucky. He is a happy boy and brings joy and inspiration to many.
Science in the form of medical excellence saved his life the first day. Thank God for it. Science used to terminate a life such as his is nothing
more than murder.
