Patricia Bauer,Â a former Washington PostÂ reporter and the mother of a child with Down syndrome, writes onÂ the Post’sÂ Op-Ed page todayÂ aboutÂ the societal pressure toÂ abort a disabled unborn child. People look at her child “curious, surprised, sometimes wary, occasionally disapproving or alarmed.”Â At a recent dinner party,Â an Ivy League professor, specializing in ethics naturally, instructed the table thatÂ parents have a duty toÂ undergo prenatal testingÂ to ensure that disabled children don’t enter theÂ world. “When I started to pipe up about our family’s experience,” writes Bauer, “he smiled politely and turned to the lady on his left.”Â
A pediatrician in Los Angeles, who used to see manyÂ children with disabilities, now sees none. HeÂ informed Bauer that on theÂ west side of L.A. they are just not born anymore.Â Â

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
