Posted on 08/15/2017 10:28:36 AM PDT by ColdOne
CBS reported Sunday that the majority of expecting mothers in the country or close to 100 percent who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.
The network tweeted on Sunday, "Iceland is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion. #CBSNOA learns more, tonight at 10pm ET/PT."
The 59-year-old actress took to Twitter with a heated reply, taking aim at the wording of the CBS tweet and Iceland in the process.
"Iceland isn't actually eliminating Down Syndrome. They're just killing everybody that has it. Big difference," she wrote.

Liberals here are waiting for the Prenatal Test that shows the Constitution Gene.
God Bless Patricia Heaton!
Great response. Right on target.
Iceland will eliminate babies the same way they eliminated dogs! These people are monstrous.
She got it exactly right. Killing someone with isn’t the same as curing or stopping it.
If CBS says somebody is eliminating Down’s Syndrome, you can be sure they’re not.
Fake news, all day every day.
Good for Patricia Heaton, she’s one of only a few in Hollyweird willing to speak out.
Hitler was eliminating the gene for a lot of deformities. Wasn’t he great?
He just killed everybody with deformed bodies in his quest for the perfect Arian race. And he performed those abortions post birth! I guess CBS would have been very impressed!
Liberals yell and b*tch about Hitler yet they CONDONE slaughtering innocent children because they don’t meet up to their standards
How would they react if we found the Antifa gene????
By that measure we could easily solve all our issues with Social Security. Just shoot all the old people.
She summed it up perfectly. Good for her.
Knowing her conservative leaning views is more than likely why her show ,The Middle, was canceled after this season.
(By that measure we could easily solve all our issues with Social Security. Just shoot all the old people.)
They’re not that far. How do you think socialized medicine deals with monetary pressure on the system? They ration care to the elderly. Once they die, they cost the government much less $.
I have liked her for years. She is also a conservative.
And by the same argument, the Nazis were eliminating Tay-Sachs disease in Europe.
She was well known as a conservative back in her Raymond days. We loved her here on FR for that.
Same as when they eliminate teen prgenancies via abortion.
Cuts down on teen motherhood but not teen pregnancy.
Exactly, the wife and I feel the same.
