Radio host corners Richard Dawkins for telling woman to abort baby with Down Syndrome — then forces him into an admission

Richard Dawkins is an outspoken atheist.

British radio host Brendan O’Connor confronted atheist Richard Dawkins last week over a controversial comment the world-famous scientist made about babies with Down Syndrome seven years ago.

In the end, O’Connor forced Dawkins into somewhat recanting.

What is the background?

Dawkins ignited controversy in August 2014 when he told a woman that it would be “immoral” to birth a child with Down Syndrome.

“Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice,” Dawkins said.
