Be Careful when you give to disability charities

Not only do their execs make huge salaries, such as that of Geraldine Dawson,  but they may be spending research money, not on a cure, but on pre-natal diagnosis, AKA search and destroy techniques to kill babies with the disability. Not curing our children who already have the disability.
Such was the case with the March of Dimes and abortion of babies with Down synrome in the 1970's and the same thing is happening now that Autism may soon be prenatally diagnosed.
Geraldine Dawson is part of a movement determined to eradicate people with autism from our society. We need more respect and understanding when it comes to the autism community. Sebelius’ choice to appoint Dawson to the IACC does not represent the hope and change that many in the autism community were expecting.
The National Down Syndrome Society and National Down Syndrome Congress both call themselves pro-choice as well. We already have a 90% abortion rate of our children, yet they stand silently by about it.

Unfortunately, she is not alone. Many well known child sponsorship charities executives plead for donations for hungry children and reward themselves with salaries approaching $500k. So, while you think you are donating to help impoverised children, you are actually helping charity execs to enjoy a life of luxury that few people can imagine. Bottom line is to do your research before donating to a charity.
