This story is troubling, very troubling. A report at LifeSiteNews tells of Israeli children with disabilities who are suing because they weren't aborted! They are suing for "wrongful life"!
The article states:
While similar lawsuits in the United States and Canada are often brought by the parents of disabled children, it is common in Israel for the children themselves to demand compensation for the fact that they were not killed in-utero.An increasing number of children, suing on their own behalf in Israel, are telling their country, their doctors and their parents, they'd rather be dead! That is a sick and pervasive result of the culture of death. These children suffer from a "genetic disorders caused by consanguineous (connected by kinship) marriages." This cultural reality "has fueled a 'pro-genetic testing culture'.” Instead of feeling loved, cared for, and given every opportunity to excel at their developmental/physical level, these children feel defeated and useless.
It's worse than that. Instead of changing the mentality of the culture, their parents have decided to continue the tradition to inter-marry and abort the genetic "problem". Those who chose to keep those babies are now faced with children who want monetary compensation for their parents' decision to give them life. And, they are testifying in their behalf!
