I’m working on an article for SpecialNeeds.com. They’ve asked me to approach the subject of prenatal diagnosis and abortion. Fun, huh? In the article, I want to show that the message from doctors when a prenatal diagnosis is given is not correct. Having a child with Down syndrome is not as terrible as they think it is. Brian Skotko
has done a lot of wonderful work in this area. Using his studies as well as the poll to your right, I want to show that choosing to keep a baby with Down syndrome is the right choice. That many of us with Down syndrome would choose to do it again if we could.
Please be honest, even if you would not do it again. I get that there are many of you who would not want to go through everything you have again. That does not mean you don’t treasure your children. I just wanted to add this to the argument if the numbers are what I think they might be…
Thanks in advance,
PS- The poll is anonymous. Please only vote once!
