Angelina's + Brad's Twins with Down Syndrome ? DNA Science !

Hey girls, did you check the pics of their twins ? It seems their twins have Down syndrome.
I'm kind of concerned, as this is a very attractive and wealthy couple.

Couldn't they do something about it ?

DNA scientists and recent experiments have revealed that doctors can intervene and create taylor-made embryos - IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT !

  • ....Is this a real question?

  • They don't have Downs, they look like their dad. They just haven't grown into the features yet. If you look at pics of Brad as a child those babies are his spitting image.

    This is a gossip article from The Star. And I think it's discusting that a rag mag would slam two small children that way.

  • Downs Syndrome is not preventable... technically it is Trisomy 21, which means three copies of chromosome 21 rather than the usual two. It is present at conception or in very early cell division- there is no way to prevent that.

  • I don't think you can 'prevent' downs syndrome... The only thing they can do is give an amnio and if they are diagnosed with it the mother and father can choose whether to abort or not, which personally I think is barbaric. However it can't be 'prevented'...

  • So, you would less likely be concerned if it wasn't an "attractive and wealthy couple?" You can not prevent Down Syndrome...
    Great answer Freela.

  • I don't think Down Syndrome can be prevented, can it? I haven't notice anything, but the whole clan seems happy.

  • There is no way to prevent it. Your child has or they don't. Older moms in their 30s have a high risk of this happening.
