Democrat Chair Resigns Who Said Disabled Babies Should be Aborted to Cut School Costs

The chairman of a local Massachusetts Democratic committee has resigned after he suggested unborn babies with disabilities should be aborted because they are a drain on public school funding.

Despite protests and calls for his resignation, the Framingham Democratic Committee rejected a motion Sunday to discuss ousting its chairman, Michael Hugo, after the horrific comment. That led to even more protests.

Hugo resigned as the chair of the Framingham Democratic Committee in Massachusetts on Thursday after the backlash contoinued. Hugo’s statement shows he clearly has no understanding about how insensitive it was to suggest that disabled babies be killed in abortions just to cut costs.

“I have apologized profusely too many times, but it seems obvious to all objective observers that there is something unusual about this particular crisis, in that it has an extraordinary life,” Hugo wrote in an email to the committee and obtained by Fox News. “Time will tell as to why this has become a – literally – international story, and why it has been amplified by the Chair of the Ashland Republican Committee.”

“God’s sign is simplicity. God’s sign is the baby. God’s sign is that He makes Himself small for us. This is how He reigns. He does not come with power and outward splendor. He comes as a baby – defenseless and in need of our help … He asks for our love: so He makes Himself a child.”

Texas abortion law prevails, but society fails Kate Cox – Fred H. Summe

Kate Cox filed a lawsuit against the state of Texas, requesting a temporary block on the state’s abortion ban. Tragically, her about 20-week-old child had been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 (Ed­ward’s Syndrome), a condition which causes delay in the development of the unborn baby, a severe disability that may cause death before birth, or within … the first few years of life.
