Children are supposed to become functional members of society and not a burden. They're supposed to spread your genes into future generations and if not, they at least should help society in any way.Of course not all autistic children should be executed only severe one.Also, if your a single you need to work and make sure your child is safe at the same time, but how? the simple question is, you can't.There are still two option sending your child: put your autistic to care or kill your child.
If you had the chance you would probably choose to put your autistic ((child)) to care.but think about it, the government pay allot for autistic people ($29 million Quebect alone) it would be cheaper to just kill him. imagine what you can do with the 29 million dollars, you could donate it to the veterans, to child who have cancer and health care.

Hello and thank you for giving me the opportunity to debate this topic with you! Good luck to us both

Let me begin by saying, that in every way, shape, and form, killing any living human being at any age because they have Autism is an idea comparable to the ideology of genocide that Nazism is known for. A real life account of this is partly covered in the book In A Different Key. In short, they would either have been gassed or injected with a lethal agent that caused pneumonia-like symptoms that would kill or starve them to death.

Now some rebuttals to your points.

Of course not all autistic children should be executed only severe one

Why should we murder children with Autism in the first place? If you have a rebuttal i would love to hear your explanation for murdering Autistic kids.

they at least should help society in any way

Some very influential figures are believed by many to have been Autistic. Examples include Albert Einstein, Amadeus Mozart, Sir Isaac Newton, even Thomas Jefferson.

Also, if your a single you need to work and make sure your child is safe at the same time, but how? the simple question is, you can't.There are still two option sending your child: put your autistic to care or kill your child.

The same way single mothers with kids that aren't Autistic keep them safe.

but think about it, the government pay allot for autistic people ($29 million Quebect alone) it would be cheaper to just kill him

I am assuming you're talking about Canada in this statement, it is not uncommon for families to wait several years to receive a diagnosis of autism for their child from publicly funded health services in most provinces. And once a child is diagnosed, interventions with a strong evidence base, such as behavioural therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy, have wait times of several months up to several years in most places across the country. Once services are received, families have access to these therapies for only limited time periods and often beyond the window of time that most experts believe optimal.

The wide range in disparity of publicly funded services for autism across the country has even generated a kind of ‘medical migration’ with several published accounts of families leaving their home provinces (most commonly, Atlantic, Ontario and Quebec) to move to Alberta or British Columbia where autism services are more readily available and/or more flexible. It is also no longer uncommon to find Canadian families using crowd sourcing campaigns to fund their children’s autism and related therapies. Many organizations and affected families across the country have been calling for a National Autism Strategy to address the critical lapses in health coverage.

imagine what you can do with the 29 million dollars, you could donate it to the veterans, to child who have cancer and
health care.

So you would rather spend the 29 million dollars on the less than 750,000 Canadian veterans and kids that survive cancer 12% of the time?

Interesting that cakerman finds the idea of killing a human adult despicable, yet a human child in the womb for the sake of convenience perfectly acceptable.

Holy crap... what the hell is wrong with you? It's not right to kill anybody (unless it's your parents in a coma or some stuff like that). You are a very sick and demented person.

I truly hope you don't actually think killing an autistic person is okay you sick, pathetic, piece of crap. Autistic people play a bigger role in society than you filthy bastard.
