I agree. I signed a waiver for the triple screen and whatnot, after talking to my husband. We both agreed that no matter what disability the child might have, we’d have to ‘deal’ with it, because abortion is not an option.
In fact, there’s a little girl here in Jacksonville that made national news: http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/local/news-article.aspx?storyid=28372 There were viewer emails that said “that child should have been destroyed (yes, that was the word they used!!!! ) at birth”… Both my husband and I shook our head in disgust, and it opened a line of communication.
Basically what I’m saying is that I don’t feel it’s necessary. Next time, if I have a downs baby, I’ll be ok!
