Woman Writes About How She Wishes She Had Aborted Her Down Syndrome Son…Who Is Still Alive

By  Ben Shapiro

Her name is Gillian Relf, and she’s a 69-year-old mother of a 47-year-old son, Stephen. There’s only one problem: Stephen has Down’s Syndrome. And that means that Gillian wishes she had killed him before he was born. How do we know that? Because she’s now written an entire piece about it in The Daily Mail (UK).

The piece amounts to a heartbreaking, extraordinarily lengthy description of the difficulty of dealing with a Down’s Syndrome child. And Gillian’s care for her son is certainly heroic. But the notion that inconvenience, difficulty, and strife justify murder is a morally sick one.
