"All that matters is what the parents want"

"All that matters is the parents get do to whatever want without consequences" FTFY

....

" Among them 43 (7.5%) died during the first week of life."

so kill them before they die, got it!


You are either very naive or a sociopath of sorts if you think parents don't have emotional consequences when aborting a baby.

I would like to educate about a piece of info you posted...."their short life span) this is totally inaccurate the oldest living downs person is a man named Kenny he is 77 years old metro.co.uk...

A guy named burt held the record he was 83 but died in 2012

there is a reason for this misinformation...back in the old days they used to lump all the deaths together and come out with an average...but this was greatly flawed....there are 2 types of down syndrome one type gets the major heart problems and parents would take them home and let them die even when heart surgery could fix the problem.....so when all these are mixed together they would say the avergae age was around 18 and yes I was horrified when a reporter said this on the tv about 20 years ago...we called the station and complained loudly.......I have a family member with downs so first hand experience here.

most are living into their sixties and the oldest is 77...they do run a higher risk for dementia...the lady who played sue sylvers sister with down syndrome on "glee" had to leave the show at a certain point because she was showing signs of dementia...by the end of the 5th season she did not remember that she was on the show.....

The GOP-led Ohio state Senate on Wednesday passed a ban on abortions based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome, and Republican Gov. John Kasich has sent signals that he will soon sign the measure into law.

Lawmakers voted 20-12 in favor of the ban, which would prohibit doctors from performing an abortion if doctors know that it is being sought, "in whole or in part," to avoid a Down syndrome pregnancy.

I am without a doubt (post history proving) pro life. That said, who can determine the worth of a life (fetus) that has downs syndrome? I can understand the potential shortened life period of a person with downs. But why should downs alone be the determining factor over what impact they have in this world? That said, who can say the life should be shortened without the chance to impact the world?


Is Ohio on the right side of history? Or not?

I on one side want to defend the right for a downs person to impact the world... but where is the line drawn?

but, every women has the constitutional right to an abortion up to viability, some states have managed to put a limit of 20wks on it.... when they have, they have had to make exceptions for some circumstances for it to be constitutional. usually, those exceptions include one for fetal abnormalities, birth defects.
my question would be if a women becomes pregnant who fears that she might be at risk of having a down syndrome and raises that issue up with doctors when the pregnancy is found to exist....
could her raising that concern eliminate her legal right to have a first trimester abortion that she could have recieved without question if she hadn't raised up her concern.
wonder how many women have raised up this concern just to find it was an unfounded fear and decided and the having that concern eliminated played a part in her decision? would they more likely with this law not to seek the answer??
shouldn't women be as well informed as possible when they make such important medical decisions?

I think the best they could do would be to removed down's syndrome from the list of exceptions when they limit the time of pregnancy.

A girls uterus is not my business. How would I know what’s in there?


Maybe you should have studied biology a little more enthusiastically.

some do, some don't...some talk to it while they are out drinking "sorry little buddy it will all be over soon" so please don't come at me like every single abortion is done with reverence. i personally know 4 women that use it as birth control without a second thought.
