a shame that 90% of unborn children diagnosed with Down Syndrome are
aborted. Of those 90% diagnosed I wonder how many really had DS as there
have been many misdiagnoses, children whose parents were told they
tested positive yet were born without it.
We are made in the image of God, therefore life is precious. Every one has some sort of physical defect at some point in their lives. Should we start looking for cancer genes in people so that we can abort the baby who will develop breast cancer when she is 35? I mean what kind of quality of life is that? How about the man who will suffer a heart attack in his 50s? What about the guy who develops MS or the woman with Alzheimers? Should we try to test for those possibilities so those people can be aborted?
Life isn't perfect people. We live in a fallen world full of disease and sickness but that doesn't mean we can't experience love and joy and happiness. All human life is precious or none is. We are the same person from fertilization until the day we die. Each life touches other lives. Abortion kills a human. Choose life.
