English writer, “scientist,” and all-around dirtball Richard Dawkins has argued that “any fetus is less human than an adult pig,” though he did concede that that doesn’t mean a human “fetus gets zero weight.” Unless, apparently, that human fetus has tested positive for Down syndrome:

This is a man who wouldn’t think twice about aborting a disabled child — or “it,” as he says. Who is he to lecture anyone on morality?

Ironic that Dawkins fancies himself a judge of the value of someone’s life when his entire existence amounts to little more than being a moral cockroach.

He’s gonna need it.

Editor’s note: The title of this post has been changed from “‘Abort it and try again’: ‘Revolting’ Richard Dawkins on unborn Down syndrome babies” to “‘Abort it and try again’: ‘Revolting’ Richard Dawkins on unborn babies with Down syndrome.”
