Handicapped call for end to abortion of handicapped babies

.- The president of the Spanish Commission of Representatives of Handicapped Persons, Luis Cayo, has called for a reform of the law that legalizes abortion in cases of fetal deformation.

Cayo said the aborting of handicapped babies is “immoral” because it is based on the belief that “persons with handicaps have less value.” He said it the belief that “a handicap is a problem and (that abortion) is a way of getting rid of it” amounts to prejudice.

Pro-life advocates are calling for the arguments by handicapped persons to be taken into account by the committee that will study the reform of the current law on abortion, which has been called for by the Socialist government.
