Mum Natalie Weaver, of Cornelius, North Carolina, tweeted: "Our #SweetSophia left this earth last night as she spent every day of her life, surrounded by love & adoration.

"Once we pull ourselves from this heart-shattering pain we will continue to help others in her memory."

Natalie was left heartbroken after sick trolls used a photo of her disabled daughter in a vile pro-eugenics campaign.

Writing on Monday, the hopeful mum said: "I’m really scared. I know my girl is a fighter and can pull through this."

Sophia had disfigurements in her face, hands, and feet as well as Type 1 diabetes and Rett syndrome, a condition that impacts her speech and coordination.

The little girl underwent 22 grueling surgeries in her short life, had a feeding tube and colostomy bag, and required 24-hour care.

Sadly, Sophia's different appearance has made her a target for nasty abuse online, with various people commenting that she would be better off not existing.

Pro-eugenics believe in "improving" the genetic features of humans through selective breeding and sterilization.

Natalie decided to take action after someone sent her a direct tweet containing a pro-eugenics message - with a picture of Sophia to illustrate it.

The heartless note read: "It is okay to think that every child matters, however a lot of them do not.

"Hence the amnio test... should be a mandatory test and if it proves negative and the woman does not want to abort then all bills accrued after that is on her and the father."

Furious that someone had used a picture of her daughter in this way, Natalie complained to Twitter with the hope that it would be removed from the site.

But despite her reporting the message and encouraging her followers to do the same, Twitter Support claimed the tweet didn't violate their rules or regulations.

Natalie, a healthcare advocate for children with complex medical needs, wrote back: "@TwitterSupport Just received an email that Twitter doesn't think a person using my child's image as the poster child to ABORT and to weed out all the 'defectives' in utero is a violation.

"Why? Because they won't recognize hate towards people with disabilities in their regulations/reports."

Eventually, after persistent battling from Natalie, Twitter apologized to her and the person who posted the nasty message was suspended.

In a follow-up email, a spokesperson for Twitter wrote: "Our goal is to create a safe environment for everyone on Twitter to express themselves freely.

"After reviewing your earlier report, it appears as though we missed a violation.

"We suspended the account you reported as it was found to be participating in abusive behavior. We apologize for this error."
