Autism Breakthrough Both Good and Bad

Autism researchers are excited about a breakthrough. They’ve identified several gene networks common in autism, and they’re working on a blood test to identify autism in children as young as one year old. This is great because it’ll provide earlier treatment with better results. But this breakthrough may have a devastating downside. Autism results from a disruption of the production of brain cells during the fourth, fifth, and sixth months of pregnancy. If the blood test in development is eventually able to be applied to babies in the womb, they’ll be targeted for killing by abortion. Over ninety-percent of unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. Unless advocates of children with autism stand in the gap, we’ll see the wholesale slaughter of these defenseless babies.
