Depends on the condition, down syndrome never, a condition where they'd Be in pain or not live very long then possibly but it would still have to be pretty bad.

 No, without hesitation.  I didn't want to get the amnio they kept trying to force on me during my last pregnancy.

I tested low on the mid pregnancy blood test, and it suggests you can have a child with down's syndrome.  She kept pushing and pushing me, but I don't think I NEED to know if the baby has downs syndrome.  Not unless I plan on aborting.  And that particular test comes with it a chance of miscarriage.  I won't risk miscarriage if I am having my baby no matter what issues there are!

And they refused to do an ultrasound to check for markers that indicate down's.  I will never go back to that doctor, ever again.

He was born completely normal, btw.

Unless it was life threatening, No. That's terrible.

My uncle has Down Syndrome and my baby cousin has Spina Bifida.
