There may be a conspiracy or just plain ignorance going on the medical field today. A friend of my family got pregnant about 13 years ago in Germany,
she was not married and did not wish to marry the man who she was with. The maternity doctor she saw over there told her that her child had down
syndrome and she should abort for her own sake, this was in her first trimester. She was shocked by this and decided to keep the child and returned
home. The child turned out normal, excels in school and was placed in the gifted program. The doctor who made the diagnosis was absolutly wrong.
While I realize that over-population is a problem I believe many opt for an abortion based on limited evidence and a pushy doctor. How can a doctor be
allowed to diagnosed a child so early in a pregnancy as 'down-syndrome' or other serious problems. I know there are obvious cases of a fetus not
developing right and good doctors have options to protect and save the child and mother but I fear many cases or over-diagnosed and the baby is placed
on unnecessary meds that may cause long term damage or worse.
Since the medical defination of Down Syndrome is someone who has an extra chromosome that results in mental retardation(though not always according to
some sources), and according to the masses any person who is retarded has Down Syndrome; why isn't there an Up Syndrome(***or as IC would say an
Indigo Child***), someone who has a good genetic makeup who should excel and perhaps be a prodigy. Is it even right to label someone either Up or
Any so called doctor that tells a patient that they should abort a child because the child has downs should be drug into the streets and shot. That so
called doctor should not be giving such idiotic advice. Downs people can live very full and productive lives not to mention how sensitive and innocent
they are. I have a brother with downs and I am very proud of him and I am very happy to have such a wonderful bro. It breaks my heart to even think
someone would advise another person to abort because of downs. Sorry for ranting It just hit a nerve
Its messed up that a doctor would do that. The fact that the doctor was wrong just shows to me how little so called experts really know. I believe the
doctor gave this advise largley because she was a single women with a mixed heritage.
ever since i was a child, i have been very frightened of people with down's syndrome, as well as those with mental retardation. i do not know what
scares me about them, just whenever i see them, i get very frightened, and that disturbs me, because i don't think i have any reason to fear them.
