A friend who will remain nameless suggested Joe Carter’s post on Down Syndrome be posted here. So here it is:
In addition to the 9 things, Joe included a link to a study I had seen mentioned a couple of places but never fully referenced: Prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome: a systematic review of termination rates (1995-2011).
I haven’t read it yet, but the summary includes the abortion rate for Down syndrome in the United States being 67% rather than the 92% I had seen documented before. Nobody can possibly think that 2 out of 3 babies being aborted is good news, but it is better than 9 out of 10.
Let’s keep praying for 0%.
