Every Life Does not Count
From my personal experience of living with spina bifida, hundred of friends with spina bifida and hydrocephalus who surround me not forgetting hundreds that I am serving here in Tanzania..... we are trying to bit all odds and living just like anyone else.
Globally, there are human rights treaties that intend to protect the lives of people with disabilities, however, lives of individuals with spina bifida, hydrocephalus and down syndrome do not count, slowly the world has justified this by allowing termination of pregnancies on basis of disabilities. This has diminished the worth of people with these disabilities... In my own opinion this is like being told you are not supposed to live because you have spina bifida, hydrocephalus or down syndrome.
For this reason, I am leaving you with a food of thought..... Does every life count?
