It's not criticism that he was chosen, it's that Gerber Life denys coverage for those with DS and other genetic conditions but Gerber chose to use a baby with DS as their Gerber baby. It doesnt appear people are upset that they are using a DS child just pointing out the hypocrisy
Criticism because the company has denied a bunch of down syndrome kids health or life insurance. (Read article to know which one)
...basically, people think Gerber might have chosen Lucas for promotional purposes. They think this because of the many denials of coverage due to "life expectancy".
So like nobody read the article …
The parents aren't getting the criticism— Gerber life is.Gerber life has been known to deny families life insurance bc their kids have Down Syndrome, citing their ""life expectancy""
He is adorable and beautiful inside and out. I’m proud of gerber for doing this. Downs babies are so smart and full of love and sweetness Lucas is awesome!!! Yay Luke!
SHAME on anyone who would have a Negative comment about this Sweet Happy Little Boy.The world and it's people could learn a lot from an adult or child with Down Syndrome.They have the Biggest Hearts and LOVE without prejudice and judgement.You're Adorable Sweet Lucas!!!!!!
I think it's awesome however he is a beautiful baby period. Why comment on the fact that he has Down's syndrome just celebrate a lovely child period
