I keep hearing a lot about these scans. I've never had one with any of my pregnancies, don't plan to have one this time either. To me, my child is my child and I will love and support them no matter what. It wouldn't matter to me if they had mental issues or what have you.

if you do choose to get the test, why?

If not, why don't you choose to? 

I'm curious to see others' responses to this.

I was prompted to write this because I was talking to someone I know about the tests, she told me she wants one. That's fine and all, nothing against moms that get the test done. I asked her why, just out of curiosity. She replied she would abort asap if they found an issue because she doesn't want her child to be bullied. I just had a jaw-drop moment when I read her reason.

We decided to pass on all of these tests. Somehow, the doctor's office ended up doing the 2nd trimester one anyway. The results came back "postitive" for Downs. My baby boy was born 100% perfect. These tests are inaccurate.
