This. Those are Gods special lil angels given only to special parents. Only HE knows why the baby was born like that. ALL babies deserve a chance at life no matter what.

Quoting ArisMom208:

I'm glad she didn't abort.
The baby might not be cute, but she atleast has a life now.

What kind of life will this child have is what comes to mind

Going through tests
As it is she has a breathing tube in her neck. What other issues besides deformity does she have?
Medical bills
Schooling
Once her parents pass away who will care for her? Is it fair to burden someone else?

What is Treacher Collins syndrome?

Treacher Collins syndrome is a condition that affects the development of bones and other tissues of the face. The signs and symptoms of this disorder vary greatly, ranging from almost unnoticeable to severe. Most affected individuals have underdeveloped facial bones, particularly the cheek bones, and a very small jaw and chin (micrognathia). Some people with this condition are also born with an opening in the roof of the mouth called a cleft palate. In severe cases, underdevelopment of the facial bones may restrict an affected infant's airway, causing potentially life-threatening respiratory problems.

People with Treacher Collins syndrome often have eyes that slant downward, sparse eyelashes, and a notch in the lower eyelids called an eyelid coloboma. Some affected individuals have additional eye abnormalities that can lead to vision loss. This condition is also characterized by absent, small, or unusually formed ears. Hearing loss occurs in about half of all affected individuals; hearing loss is caused by defects of the three small bones in the middle ear, which transmit sound, or by underdevelopment of the ear canal. People with Treacher Collins syndrome usually have normal intelligence.

This. And I think this is very sad for them to make fun of a child with a genetic malformative condition. Just plain wrong. A mother's love for her child is boundless, regardless of the child's condition.

I think it is a little girl with Treacher Collins Syndrome.

Treacher Collins has very obvious facial deformities.  That is definitely a child with Treacher Collins.

What's that? It does not say what she has.

Am I the only person seeing this as a shot from pro-choice extremists? Like it's sarcasm?
