Most of them end up on life support for a while, then are doomed to a life of being profoundly disabled, and unable to care for themselves their entire life.  

Would you want your child saved no matter the price to the child?

They aren't always disabled. I would do what I could to save my baby.

No. I know most people think a life is a life. Not me. You also have to think about quality of life. Call me selfish but I don't want to care for severely disabled the rest of my life. I just wouldn't.

Personally- No. I also understand, for some parents, the need for "late term" abortion based on extensive testing.
For Others- Their kid, their choice

I'm undecided. It would depend on the prognosis of my child.

i couldn't say without going through it.  even then, with all the different variables, my answer would change based on the specific situation.
