I think of the many heartless people mentioned in the news daily but I would suggest Brock and Rhea Wuth would win as the most heartless couple of the year.
They are currently at home with their 5 year old and $50 million dollars they won for suing the hospital where they gave birth to him.
The parents had been tested for genetic defects while in utero and those tests were sent to a lab for results. But the parents found out that the tests were not given the specifics on the location of the defects, therefore they weren’t given enough time to abort their son knowing he would be born with abnormalities.
In a nutshell, the parents wanted the chance to abort the boy if he genetically defective.
Go ahead and let that sink in.
This is not just an abortion story where the parents were scared or not ready. They are two professional adults who wanted a child….as long as he/she was not provided an extra chromosome. They sued the hospital because they felt they were not given the chance to consider their options. It is a sad story all around, and it is a terrible situation to consider. I am writing this with a heavy pen and a bitter taste. I think of the millions of couples who want children. Who would give anything for a beautiful children that was a piece of both of them. Who can’t give birth. Who can’t conceive. Who wouldn’t give a shit if the child was born with a defect. It would be theirs. It would be their baby. It would be their whole world.
Shame on this couple, I say.
No, I’m not walking in their shoes and yes, I am judging.
When you make the decision to become a parent in your life, you give up all selfish tendencies. You give up the right to choose you over the baby. You have no right to play take-backs. “No, wait. I change my mind. This isn’t what I wanted.”
Shame on you, Wuths. What are you going to tell your son when he reads the news article? That you were kidding?
