In one of the more disgusting examples of the collapse of our culture and the corruption of our media, CBS reported happily on Iceland’s battle against people with Down Syndrome.

That’s right – their fight against people with Down Syndrome.

CBS (and other media outlets) are reporting on the shocking drop in children born with Down Syndrome as a battle against the chromosome disorder, but the truth is that we haven’t figured out a “cure” for the problem, we’ve just been killing anyone who tests positive for the disorder.

Here’s how CBS reported the news Down Syndrome births had been all but eliminated in Iceland… thanks to abortion.

Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women — close to 100 percent — who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.

Since about 85% of Icelandic women have the screening done, and close to 100% of those receiving a positive test for Down Syndrome abort their children, nearly every Down Syndrome child is being murdered by the people of Iceland.

It’s not just Iceland that is barbarically targeting their Down Syndrome children for genocide:

Other countries aren’t lagging too far behind in Down syndrome termination rates. According to the most recent data available, the United States has an estimated termination rate for Down syndrome of 67 percent (1995-2011); in France it’s 77 percent (2015); and Denmark, 98 percent (2015). The law in Iceland permits abortion after 16 weeks if the fetus has a deformity — and Down syndrome is included in this category.

Why is the Western world eradicating these precious children? Because they believe that these beautiful people cannot live full and productive lives, but CBS has evidence to the contrary:

Children born with this genetic disorder [Down Syndrome] have distinctive facial issues and a range of developmental issues. Many people born with Down syndrome can live full, healthy lives, with an average lifespan of around 60 years.

Why don’t these people get to live? Because modern Western culture has become monstrous.

Fortunately, some people on Twitter noticed the ugly truths hidden in this story, starting with famed TV actress Patricia Heaton (of Everyone Loves Raymond and the Middle).

Several Twitter users spoke up with stories of getting false positives on Down Syndrome tests:
