UK mom wishes ‘every day’ she had aborted Down Syndrome son

For example, love has made a woman in London publicly wish that she’d killed her son with Down Syndrome.  Well, she’s calling it love.

Gillian Relf gave a disturbingly candid interview to the Daily Mail, and she says she wishes “every day” that she had aborted her son, Stephen.
