Criticism Of Gerber: The Family Of The First Gerber Baby With Down Syndrome Speak Out
February 15, 2018
Have you met Lucas Warren? If you’ve ever held some Gerber baby food in your hands, you might have probably seen his face on the packs. The thing is that Lucas was announced as the 2018 ‘Gerber Baby’, and he was the first baby with Down syndrome. He was chosen among 140,000 other babies, and his parents, Jason and Cortney Warren, were completely shocked when they learned the news.
From one side, it’s a great victory that finally our society grows responsible and sympathetic, but on the other side, the family of the little Lucas has lots of apprehensions towards all the publicity. They worry that the society might treat their little boy with cruelty and bias due to his disease.
