Why Should we Prevent those we Love

Being in Stockholm Sweden for one week was a fabulous week full of knowledge organized by the International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. It was a chance to learn more about spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

Most countries have always opted on therapeutic abortion for unborn children who have spina bifida and hydrocephalus. This has been looked from the point of preventing them from existing!

But the most touching presentation was "Why should we prevent those we love" meaning why should we terminate or abort children who have different deformities?

This brought about the sense of protecting and respecting every one's life despite their challenges. It was an inspiring talk!
