"I want a child with autism"

This is what my friend just told  me. We were talking on the phone and she was saying how she just found out she was pregnant, of course I congratulated her, and she said " yeah I home this baby has autism." you what? " well I see all of these moms whose kids have autism and stuff like that, getting all this attention, so I hope he at least has SOMETHING like that" 


I hung up on her...


What do you think.. What would you have said?.. I know I shouldn't have hung up on her or whatever, but I couldn't believe she said that...


ETA

I didn't post this for drama like a few of you are thinking. I am just as shocked as the next person as to why she would say something like this! 

Also, She is 23, like me, we have been friends since we were age 4. This will be her 1st child.. I never in a million years would think she of all people would say something like this... \

That's why I decided to post it, to see what other mamas would think.. I want to slap her so hard, and my kids do not have any delay problems...

Is this for real, or is this some kind of joke? If it is for real your friend needs mental help...

Procrastination is like masturbation. It's all good until you realize you just fucked yourself.

Your friend sounds like the idiot queen.  I'm sure once she found out how much hard work and sacrifice goes into raising a child with ANY disability she might not think it was so glamorous.  Anyone who needs attention that badly prolly doesn't need kids.

Hanging up on her was fine!
