What did Jon do?

The father of a young man with Down Syndrome wants to know what his child did that's so horrible that the ACOG wants to "screen" (and, of course, eliminate), children like him.

A good question. What is it that folks with Down Syndrome do that makes people want them wiped off the face of the earth? Why is it considered a noble goal to make sure no more kids like Jon Will are born?

Is Jon hateful, loathsome, dangerous?

Or is he just a reminder that not everybody is perfect?

Why are people like Jon such a threat that they have to be eliminated?
