Down Syndrome

PW Friday I guess.

There was a survey study done on families that have a child with Down Syndrome. The findings were quite inspiring (right here). The vast majority of families responding reported that their lives are better because of their child.

It's interesting timing for the study because a non-invasive test to detect Down Syndrome much earlier is being made available this fall. Stats show that up to 90% of women who find out their fetus has Down Syndrome choose to abort. This article says that Down Syndrome is slowly being erased from society.

What is your opinion on the issue? If you found out you were going to have a child with Down Syndrome would you end the pregnancy or keep the baby?
