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!

I should only have one word: CONGRATULATIONS !!!
but you know me, I talk too much, thus you'll allow me to add: THIS IS SIMPLY GREAT, what you've done.
and then a few more more words: you also made me VERY HAPPY, 'cause you know that somehow, with my limited capaciticies, I've tryed to do my best to help you.
well, last few words, believe me - there are witnesses here in Milan who can confirm that - as soon as I learnt the great news about Sweden, it's well over 13 hours that I CAN'T STOP POURING TEARS for the happiness that you have donated to me.
thanks to you I feel so proud, you have returned to me the MEANING OF LIFE, because of your courage which is an inspiraton. but I promised just one word to summarize all this up: again, simply, CONGRATULATIONS !!!
