Many of us have seen the news of the letter that a mother received essentially asking that her autistic son be euthanized. It is sad to see just how far the country has come in its ideology, when letters like this are actually given to parents of children who were born differently.
The worst part of this is that there are leaders in America and the world who actually believe that euthanasia is appropriate and should be implemented for those who need extra care (such as the elderly and autistic/down syndrome children). One of the more notable ones is a possible Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
I wanted to include the text of the letter so you can see how hateful and vile things have started to become. I must warn you that it is indeed bad, and will make your blood boil, as it did mine.
To the lady living at this address:
I also live in this neighborhood and have a problem!!!! You have a kid that is mentally handicapped and you consciously decided that it would be a good idea to live in close proximity neighborhood like this???? You selfishly put your kid outside everyday and let hime be a nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling he constantly makes!!! That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL!!!!!!!!!! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!!! When you fell your idiot kids nees fresh air, take him to our park you dope!!! We have a nature trail!! Let hime run around those places and make noise!!!!!! Crying babies, music and even barking dogs are normal sounds in a residential neighborhood!!!!! He is NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He is a hindrance to everyone and will always be that way!!!!! Who the hell is going to care for him?????? No employer will hire him, no normal girl is goign to marry/love him and you are not going to live forever!! Personally, they should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. What the hell else good is he to anyone!!! You had a retarded kid, deal with it… properly!!!!! What right do you have to do this to hard working people!!!!!!! I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatmen!!! GOD!!!!!!!
Do everyone in our community huge a favor and MOVE!!!! VAMOSE!!! SCRAM!!!! Move away and get out of this type of neighborhood setting!!! Go live in a trailer in the woods or something with your wild animal kid!!! Nobody wants you living here and they don’t have the guts to tell you!!!!!
Do the right thing and and move or euthanize him!!! Either way, we are ALL better off!!!
One pissed off mother!!!!
Now, this really does tick me off for a big reason: my future step son is autistic. This lady knows nothing about how wonderful autistic children are. It does take a little getting used to at first, but after getting to know Brandon, I found out that he is one of the most loving and gentle people I have ever met. Does he take more time to learn? Sure. Does he require better supervision? Of course. But he is also one of the greatest blessings in my life as well as my fiance’s.
My personal feeling toward this woman is that she is the problem, not the child. It is the mentality like hers that damages the world. It is through our weaknesses and differences that we all are a little better. What the autistic child may lack in one area, they are leaps and bounds ahead in others. Perhaps this woman should do a little research and she would find that many people with autism, ausberger syndrome, etc. have been some of the greatest minds the world has known.
She is sickening, and she should be the one to move.
