The "unworthy" of life imperfect ones

I am unapologetically pro-life. As far as I am concerned there are no reasons good enough to kill a baby. There are occasionally some very hard situations like ectopic pregnancy where the baby will normally die anyway so there is usually no choice but to end the pregnancy to save the mother. Although there have been extremely rare cases where some of these have lived. Hopefully someday medical science will be able to overcome these situations. But for now the parents are left with some devastating things to think about. This is obviously an extremely heart breaking scenario to have to go through.

The flip side of this is parents who abort because of a lack of perfection in the fetus. Ultrasound technology is a window into the womb and while it can be used to save an unborn baby's life it also allows things that were once hidden until birth to be glaringly visible leading to multitudes of unborn babies being killed by parents who would have wanted them otherwise. Other medical tests such as amniocentesis have also revealed former hidden issues and further increased the number of babies aborted for reasons of fetal imperfection.

In the United States an estimated 92% of all babies diagnosed with Down's syndrome before birth will be killed in the womb (1). Babies are also being aborted for everything from heart defects to cleft palates to dwarfism. This desire for perfection in order to love and parent is yet another indication of our morally bankrupt position as a society. True parental love is not bound by the imaginary standard of perfection but is steadfast, realizing that true perfection is non existent.

We have no guarantees in this life. A baby born today appearing to be perfectly healthy can develop leukemia tomorrow. A baby born today without the slightest blemish can me maimed in an accident tomorrow. What happens then? Do we stop loving and parenting because the child no longer meets the ambiguous definition of perfection? ...
