Atheist author and biologist Richard Dawkins tweeted his opinion that expectant mothers who find out their baby will have Down syndrome should ‘abort it and try again.’ Sarah Palin challenged him to meet her 6-year-old son Trig, who has Down syndrome.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is inviting a man, who previously claimed that unborn children with Down syndrome should be aborted, to meet her 6-year-old son who has the condition.
Biologist and atheist Richard Dawkins tweeted on Aug. 20 that an expectant mother who knew that her baby would have Down syndrome should „abort it and try again.“ While Dawkins would later apologize for his „phraseology,“ Palin took to Facebook the next day to invite him to meet her son, Trig.
