Down with the Downs

Combination of Tests Can Detect Down Syndrome During First Trimester, Study Says
I just new by seeing the title that this article would have to involve abortion. The so-called “Implications” with these new tests are that “earlier screening would provide women carrying an affected fetus time to decide whether to undergo an abortion or carry the pregnancy to term” and that “terminations are earlier, more private and far safer than in the second trimester”. It goes on to say that “many pregnant women do not seek early prenatal care but added that researchers are ‘trying to get the message out there that people should show up as early as possible for prenatal care'”. So basicially “prenatal care” is aborting your child? …doesn’t seem to “careful” to me…

  1. I love how the researcher added ” that both tests carry a small risk of infection or miscarriage.” Oh, just a minor detail, we may harm or kill your baby, but at least you’ll be 90% sure that he/she doesn’t have Down syndrome.

  2. You see, it doesn’t matter if the child is miscarried…they didn’t really *want* the child to begin with…

  3. Well, not exactly. If the child was shown NOT to have Down syndrome, then they DID want the child after all. Remember, the child’s worth comes from how much the mother (and sometimes the father) want the child.

  5. But still…they probably didn’t have time for the child anyway…they do have important things like their careers to think about.
