Have you ever had a friend, or a loved one with Down Syndrome? Should they have been killed?

In a shocking revelation about "enlightened" culture in America, 92% of people with Down Syndrome, are done in before they can be delivered.
Who are we post 1960s Americans and what are we losing?

In the United States, would you believe ninety-two percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted before they get a chance to take a breath? When I hear this statistic, it makes me want to burst into tears. I can’t imagine a world without Trig — he is the best brother! (Okay, you’re not too bad either, Track!)
It’s crazy how in love with Trig we all are. When Tripp is acting up — which he does often! — I sometimes joke with my mom.
“Hey, want to trade kids?” I laugh.
Willow and I always talk about how lovable Trig is, and how we’d take him over any so-called “normal” kid anyday! He’s way cooler than people with fewer chromosomes. I’d have a Down syndrome baby in a heartbeat, and I know anyone else would if they saw any sort of glimpse of how perfect my little brother is.
