Would you want your next child to be disabled? No? Well, they do in England. Because their government pays big subsidies to parents of kids that are physically impaired or have low intelligence. Of course, they don’t call it a subsidy, it’s referred to as Social Security. All paid for by the taxpayer. These benefits amount to big money, especially when you include the Mobility Scheme: a free car with all expenses paid except petrol. Combine that with the free-of-charge National Health Service, and what do you get? You get women queuing up for artificial insemination. But they aren’t looking to have a child fathered by a genius or an Olympic champion. Oh no, they’re mostly looking for donors of low intelligence. Dr Mohammed Patel of St James’ Teaching Hospital in Leeds, Yorkshire told us: “Most patients opt for low intelligence rather than massive physical disability for one simple reason. Low maintenance. Let’s face it, a kid with the same intelligence as a vegetable can be left to its own devices with little attention required, whereas physical disability usually means lots of heavy lifting and tiresome conversations.” Mr Andy Burnham, the government minister in charge of the Health Service said: “It’s easy to be cynical. But we are striving for a fair society and do not accept stereotyping. We must support disadvantaged people, and we will not be deflected from this even if our policies mean that more parents have disabled children.”

As a Brit living in England, I would like to inform all of the readers of Healthadel.com that the above article about British disabled kids is completely untrue. No woman in her right mind in the UK or in any other country would visit a sperm bank and specifically ask to be inseminated with an unhealthy sperm in order to have disabled children whether physical or mental.
After contacting the St James’ Teaching Hospital in Leeds I discovered that no doctor by the name of Dr Mohammed Patel works or has worked at the hospital and the hospital were quick to let me know that they do not condone the words that have been shared in the previous version of this article. In fact I was clearly told that the views expressed in the article are not the views of anyone who works at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Furthermore Mr Andy Burnham who was quoted in the article does also not agree with what has been said and is shocked that such cruel words would be published online.
So why has the above article come to light? In the United Kingdom there are laws in place to help disadvantaged children. The parents of British disabled children are given extra help by the government in the form of Disabled Living Allowance. This consists of a small amount of money per week depending on the level of disability that the child has. You will find that a child will receive around £20 a week for a mild disability and £75 a week for a severe one. This money goes towards providing extra care for a child and is, in the grand scheme of things, not a lot of money.
A similar system is in place to support the elderly and adults with any form of disability. No-one specifically goes to a sperm bank with the aim of having a disabled child purely for these “hand outs” and there is no such system in place that even allows this – such a thing would be illegal and would never be allowed to continue. And even if it was allowed the hand outs that the parents of British disabled children receive are hardly enough to care for the child let alone enough to live a “good life” on.
Every parent who has a child wants one thing – them to be healthy. To even think that people would visit a sperm bank with the hope of giving birth to a disabled child is ridiculous. Yes there are things in place to help the disabled in the United Kingdom and this is a GOOD thing! The money the parents of disabled children receive goes towards paying for things such as special schooling, care at home and equipment around the home to make theirs and their child’s life easier. The money does not go towards lining their own pockets out of greed. I am not sure who wrote the initial version of this article but claiming that people purely have disabled kids for the benefits it brings has clearly never been to the UK or had children of their own. It is a complete disgrace.
