Washington Post Editor Celebrates Her Right To Abort Down Syndrome Baby

Ruth Marcus, an editor with “The Washington Post,” is under fire after writing an opinion editorial Friday titled “I would’ve aborted a fetus with Down syndrome. Women need that right.”

Marcus, a mother of two, began the piece by saying,”There is a new push in anti-abortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable — and wrong.”

She goes on to say that if she had found out during either one of her pregnancies that her unborn child had Down syndrome, she would have terminated the pregnancy, “without hesitation … tragic as it would have felt and ghastly as a second-trimester abortion would have been.”

Children with Down syndrome have “limited capacity for independent living and financial security; Down syndrome is life-altering for the entire family,” wrote Marcus. She added, “That was not the child I wanted. That was not the choice I would have made. You can call me selfish, or worse, but I am in good company.”
