If it's true, it's very sad and must end. A person's right to life is not determined by the condition of their mind, their body, or how useful they can or will be to society.
This is not exactly the same, but in a similar vein. There's a family at my parish whose son is paraplegic and I have a family friend whose son is "cognitively disabled". There's another family at my parish who has an autistic son. I always see how lovingly and joyfully that these souls are welcomed. It's very sad that an organization that is, I would presume, meant to promote awareness and care of autistic children would put aside a fund for this.
If it's true, it must end.2
