A doctor who was recruited from Germany to fill a position in Australia that was underserved has been declined permanent residency because his son has Down’s Syndrome! The reasoning stated is that the government is concerned that the boy may have expensive medical needs which the Australian socialized medicine system (i.e., the taxpayer) will have to pay for. What next? Forced abortions on women who discover that their babies have Down Syndrome or some other problem to save money?
