A spin-off of our “They Can Hear You” collection.
When you muse that children with disabilities are too expensive or are difficult to care for or lack quality of life, the parents who love them (and work incredibly hard for them) can hear you. Your ableism devalues our children’s lives.
When you suggest women who conceive in rape would never want to “endure” having and raising their children, you stigmatize both mother and child. Your prejudice devalues our children’s lives.
And when you suggest it’s better to abort than to have children while struggling financially, you shame poor families. And your classism devalues our children’s lives.
