Birth defects are caused by people having the wrong genes or chromosomes, as well as by the environment in the womb. People born with birth defects have lives to live just like everyone else and they should not be subject to discrimination. According to UNESCO’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”
