  • “The Zika virus can cause birth defects…” So can poor nutrition and hundreds of chemicals in our environment!! Why is the CDC singling out Zika?

  • This is spreading faster than originally thought possible… Maybe more studies will find a way to stop the spread of this disease

  • Unfortunately, eugenic abortions are illegal in some of the countries affected by this virus and there is not much of a social safety net to help families deal with the difficulty of raising a child with intellectual disabilities.
