Skip to comments.University Professor Promotes Killing Disabled Babies: “Time to Support Eugenic Abortion”
Posted on 01/04/2018 2:21:56 PM PST by Morgana
David Perry, a senior academic adviser at University of Minnesota, and a former professor at Dominican University, recently wrote a piece for The Nation, where he champions abortion for babies diagnosed with Down syndrome or other possible mental or physical disabilities.
In a piece titled, Republicans Are Using Fear of Eugenics to Attack Reproductive Rights, Perry argues that recent attempts to prohibit Down syndrome abortions, such as a recently signed and passed piece of legislation in Ohio, is not really about protecting vulnerable human beings, but about controlling womens bodies.
In fact, Perry attacks Republicans for using language about eugenics to restrict abortion. While noting that society needs to become more accepting of children with mental or physical disabilities, Perry also writes, Still its time to affirmatively support the right to eugenic abortion, even as we fight the need for it. The struggle for disability rights begins with the affirmation that no one gets to tell anyone else what to do with their body. That includes abortion.
When it comes down to not supporting eugenics or supporting abortion, Perry summarizes the view of three abortion supporters; Concern over selective abortion is serious, but placing the autonomy of a pregnant individual over their own body comes first. Not only is it ethically correct, but prioritizing bodily autonomy remains the best path forward to support disability rights.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, strongly condemned the sentiment.
She said, For anyone to promote eugenics is downright disgusting, but to have a professor and academic adviser promote eugenics is even worse. Perry is just another example of an extremely pro-abortion professor who preaches an anti-life message and lacks any sort of coherent moral framework. That he would be trusted to advise young students is disturbing. To top it all off, Perrys exploitation of his own son to justify eugenics should be seen as extremely troubling. As a parent of two children with Cystic fibrosis and a taxpayer in Minnesota, it is extremely troubling that taxpayer dollars are being used to subsidize Perrys writings.
The University of Minnesota did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
How very Hitlerian of him................................
Time to abort Leftist university professors from faculties across the nation.
This guy just wants to be God.
He should get some tropical fish and be god to them. See how that works.
“Doktor” Perry is the “progressive” culture of death/eugenics.
They finish as they started.
Maybe we should start with this professor..after all professor is just another term for retard..wonder if he is Ok with having himself killed
Uncle Adolph would be pleased.
The Modern Socialist apple doesn't fall very far from the National Socialist tree.
Apparently he is a Catholic who specializes in Catholic studies. He also has a son with Down syndrome. Sure would hate to be that kid!
They haven’t figured out that the reason they are so sort of voters is that they have been killing potential voters for 40+ years.
I remember some famous people in the 1930s who promoted the same thing. Maraget Sanger here in the US.... and some people in Germany.
Were getting to the point were we just leave the unwanted babies out on the hillside to feed the animals as the romans used to do. Letting nature be the judge somehow fits this mindset.
A true fruit cake who clearly has no desire to father a child. Im so sick of these killers who wander free and baby killing is their hill to die on.
We can see in this article that.he is a NAZI. We can surmise he is also a Democrat.
Prof. Perry has clearly never met the Downs folks I know.
The only way that Socialism can work is to level the playing field and make everyone equal... And eugenics and aborting children from failed gene pools in the form of humans with physical and mental impairment is the key to achieving their goal of a perfect society.
Just consult the mindsets of Canada’s famous socialist Tommy Douglas and America’s mother of abortion and eugenics Margaret Sanger, two of history’s finest Socialist. Or even the famous flying ace Charles Lindbergh another supporter of Socialism and eugenics, and a strong supporter of Adolf Hitler as well. He even birthed several children with young Nazi selected German females to carry on his gene pool.
Yup... These are the sick puppies that are out there amongst us. They will gladly tell you how it should be, who it should be, and what you should and shouldn’t do.
So . . . Dr. Menegele has a Grandson or a Great Grandson.
Who is the Nazis now Herr Doktor? Un-American Professor should be canned.
We will start with him.
