Read How This Mom Responded To A Cashier Who Said She Should Have Had An Abortion

A young mom with a Down syndrome two-year-old had an uncomfortable run-in with her local cashier.HandMeDowns_BODY.jpg

As she was in the checkout line with her two-year-old son, Gabe, the cashier leaned over and said in a hushed voice,

“I bet you wish you had known before he came out. You know they have a test for that now…”

The young mother, Sherry, whispered back, "What you’re saying is that it’s okay for me to kill him while he’s inside, but not outside? In my book there isn’t a difference. For the record, we knew EVERYTHING about him during my pregnancy. He is our son now and he was our son then. There is no way in hell that I would let any harm come to either of my children. Including during the time that they’re so ridiculously considered disposable."

A recent IJ Review article reflected on this interaction, saying, "Whether a person is tall or short, black or white, and does or doesn’t have a disability, their life is precious. Destroying that life before it begins would deny the world a chance to see incredible kids like Gabe live up to their fullest potential."
