He posted that on his official Twitter and because only 140 characters were allowed, he couldn't express everything he wanted to, so he released another post to support it 

"Obviously the choice would be yours. For what it’s worth, my own choice would be to abort the Down fetus and, assuming you want a baby at all, try again. Given a free choice of having an early abortion or deliberately bringing a Down child into the world, I think the moral and sensible choice would be to abort. And, indeed, that is what the great majority of women, in America and especially in Europe, actually do. I personally would go further and say that, if your morality is based, as mine is, on a desire to increase the sum of happiness and reduce suffering, the decision to deliberately give birth to a Down baby, when you have the choice to abort it early in the pregnancy, might actually be immoral from the point of view of the child’s own welfare. I agree that that personal opinion is contentious and needs to be argued further, possibly to be withdrawn. In any case, you would probably be condemning yourself as a mother (or yourselves as a couple) to a lifetime of caring for an adult with the needs of a child. Your child would probably have a short life expectancy but, if she did outlive you, you would have the worry of who would care for her after you are gone. No wonder most people choose abortion when offered the choice. Having said that, the choice would be entirely yours and I would never dream of trying to impose my views on you or anyone else."

1. I wholeheartedly agree with him 

2. What he said is true 

3. I feel like htis would be the answer of all parent s

4. Personally, I hope that disabled children will be raised by people who grow up with a lot of love in good families and can give their children plenty of affection. People who are not confident should just have an abortion.

5. I will abort them, I feel bad for them, but I will not be able to endure such a painful life 

6. Honestly, I won't be able to birth them 

7. It'll be hard on both the kid and the parents, this is the most realistic choice 

8. You should choose when you're still allowed to choose

9. I agree

10. Whatever the mother chooses, I must respect it
