Genocide? Seriously? To cure a crippling disease is now considered genocide. If you bothered to read the article, you would see that it isn’t just being short–the disorder involves major skeletal issues. Many people need multiple surgeries, they get spinal stenosis and hydrocephalus is another complication. They are not a “race” or an ethnic group. They are people who have a genetic disorder. Following your logic, we should not try to cure or prevent any genetic disorder, even the ones that are lethal. People with cystic fibrosis should be allowed to suffer, ditto for trisomy 18 and 13, sickle cell anemia and thallessemia….the list goes on. We should honor “diversity” and not try to treat or cure any of them. Let’s see how you would feel with a child with a life threatening and/or congenital disorder that has effective treatment–I bet you would turn your nose up at it.
