Are Syrian Refugees Really the Same as Unborn Children?

I’ve noticed a recent trend on social media that is especially ridiculous even for social media standards.

Our Culture’s Unfortunate Perspective on “Disabilities”

My wife and I met a woman and her disabled one-year old son this past weekend. He was born without eyes, his ear canals were incomplete, he had a cleft through his lip and into his palate, and perhaps a variety of other disabilities.
