Is it right for dwarves to be allowed to have children knowing they will also be dwarves?

Just curious about people’s opinion on people with disabilities having children pretty much guaranteeing them the same disability and why would they want to do that to their children when they know how difficult it is in today’s world. 


EDIT you also should not be allowed to have children if you can’t string a sentence together and come across highly uneducated. 

Update 2:

EDIT dwarfism is a medical term. This was not meant to be an offensive question. My question is why would someone with a condition or disease and a high probability of passing that same condition onto their child want to put a child at risk of that, I just feel it’s highly irresponsible.

    What you are talking about, selective births, it is a slippery slope.  Who gets to decide who is viable to have children. Who decides what disabilities should not bare children.  Little People go through school, are educated, have jobs. They are a productive part of sociality.

    REALLY?  why do people answer when they are clueless?  Midget is the offensive term.  Dwarf, Little Person, People of Restricted Growth and Short Statured seem to be acceptable.

    never heard of 'small' as acceptable.

    First of all, they aren't called "dwarfs". That's a very rude, very mean spirited term. They are referred to correctly as "small". And it's perfectly possible for a small person or small couple to have normal sized children. The condition they have isn't hereditary. And people with disabilities DO NOT always pass on their disabilities to their kids. That's pure BS. Autism, for example, has many forms, and just because someone might have an Autistic parent doesn't mean he or she will be Autistic him or herself.

    People with disabilities have the SAME RIGHTS and the same FEELINGS as those who are non-disabled. This includes the right to marry and to procreate, as they see fit. Disability rights, pal, ARE CIVIL RIGHTS. They aren't separate from them.

    Any legal-age person who is able to care for themselves is allowed to have a child.

    Yes. They have the same rights as any other person, as they should.
