Well I am not saying you have to terminate him. If you can deal with that for the rest of your life then that is great. I am just saying lets give
people the freedom to choose. It doesnt matter if we personally agree with it. It is thier family. Lets give them the freedom to choose how they
want to live. My friends child is 5. They do love him but he just gets to be more of a burden each year.
I understand your thinking since I used to be pro-life not that long ago. It can seem harsh, but isnt it worse making innocent people suffer just
because they were unfortunate to get a mentally ill child or a parent with cancer, or something of that nature. Something like that could interrupt
someones schedule and life plans and it isnt right. Also, what if a woman was raped and in shock until after she had the baby. Then later realized
that she hated it. Shouldnt she be allowed to be free of the past transgressions of another?

No, you definetaly mentioned termination. On more than one occasion. Poisonous gases, injections etc. Right?
You said your best friend's child is 5. I mean, I won't even condole it but, wouldn't a more "humane" approach be to atleast put him where
(facility) he can seek the proper attention and care?
See, even this is wrong. And that's what I weigh it out as. Right and wrong.
Yes, life can be unfortunate, or unlucky for some people.
Quote I like to repeat myself, through hardships:
"For every person with no shoes, there's someone with no feet."
But to put a retarded kid "out of his misery" (as your buddy put it) is some mediavil, nazi sh*t.
Best of it you said, "they love him."
I cannot fathom or properly contemplate that statement.
That's why I'm saying: SHADY!
As for the freedom to choose? Again, right and wrong. You decide.
Remember, the handicapped people didn't have the choice in this matter either.
As much as I believe in the power of choice, I would never condole this.
As for abortion, and other issues, I really don't feel like opening that can of worms. I was just interested in your putting people to sleep
