    Oh gosh. This attitude makes my blood boil. As a mummy to a special little miracle. ..a girl who does have a disability of which both my DH knew of at the 20 week scan (and then learned later after her birth of more complications).... she's precious. ..and just as deserving of life as anyone else! And just as deserving of assistance as anyone in this country too. Raising a kiddo with a disability is bl00dy hard work. And our government and welfare is designed to help those who are ill /less fortunate /vulnerable etc.
    Where does it stop I wonder with such an ignorant opinion? All the elderly who need help should be euthanized? Children born with special needs should be 'put down' if the parents didn't know? Anyone who develops a life threatening illness should just die?? Gee. I hope he doesn't have children. Doesn't sound at all compassionate.

    Ignorant opinions like this deserve a slap. .. well. .I guess that isn't very polite but still.

    I would have said with opinions like that i hope he is never put in the difficult position of finding out his child or potential child has a possible disability

    I would have replied with "the Nazi's had a similar opinion about people with disabilities and their right to life". What a complete a-hole. He wouldn't be welcome in my home again.

    My exh used to do this a lot. Spout inflammatory comments to cause a sh*t stir at gatherings.
    Best way to deal with these people is to not even enter into a 'conversation or discussion' with them.
    They don't want to have a productive discussion to gather other people's opinions or learn from other people's experiences, they like to use the opportunity as an editorial into their bulls**t opinions and ideals.

    Not responding takes the wind out of their sails!

    I went and did the washing up. I was still next to the conversation, but didn't have to contribute. My partner deflected and moved it on.

    The best part is I have no idea how much longer BIL is staying with us for and DP is back at work next week. Fun times

    Ask your hubby to tell his brother to not sprout inflammatory stuff in your house. It's your hubby's job to pull his brother into Iine and it's the lease they can both do if your BIL is staying in your house.

    Get your hubby to chat to BIL about timeframes and putting a limit on their stay.

    Thanks for the support.
    Don't worry, I'll be telling him to pull his head in if he acts like that again. I do not need to be liked by him.
    Luckily he has decided to leave this weekend, so not long to go
