Now, my take on this is not hatred to those with Downs, but a statement to prevent people in future being born with it, In the same way a "Let's make Cancer extinct" T-shirt would.
Am I being naive? Am I actually Hitler in disguise?
I've not actually checked who is selling the shirts to see if the money from the sales goes to any research as such so could understand people questioning it from that angle.
It's just the instant Twitter outrage that gets me.
Is it the whole Eugenics side that people are angry with? I'm not sure.

Amazon is selling terrorist recruitment material and bomb-making manuals including a sadistic novel by Osama Bin Laden and jihadi books banned in British prisons, a MailOnline investigation has revealed.
The online retailer offers titles by jailed clerics and those expelled from Britain, leading to accusations that it is spreading the jihadis' message for them.
Many of the books, which have radicalised thousands of international terrorists, are available for next-day delivery. Some can be downloaded instantly as Kindle editions anywhere in the world.
The inflammatory titles are sold by third parties using Amazon's platform, allowing them global reach and lending them an aura of legitimacy.
Oh bugger apologies for the crapple typo in the title.
Wondering why your Amazon package smelt of piss?
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos may be the world's richest person, with a net worth of about $112 billion (£78 billion), but at least some of those working on his warehouse floors are apparently so desperate to keep their jobs that they don't even take time to use a restroom.
The author James Bloodworth went undercover at an Amazon warehouse in Staffordshire, UK, for a book on low wages in Britain. He found that the warehouse's fulfillment workers, who run around Amazon's massive warehouses gathering products for delivery, had a "toilet bottle" system in place because the bathrooms were too sparse to get to quickly.
"For those of us who worked on the top floor, the closest toilets were down four flights of stairs," Bloodworth told The Sun. "People just peed in bottles because they lived in fear of being disciplined over 'idle time' and losing their jobs just because they needed the loo."
Amazon is known to track how fast its warehouse workers can pick and package items from its shelves, imposing strictly timed breaks and targets. It issues warning points for those who don't meet its goals or who take extended breaks.
