It has never been a better time to be a person with Down syndrome, unless he is still in the womb.
I empathize with these women because I know what it feels like to have a doctor tell you your child could die in utero or live a hard life. But it doesn’t justify abortion as a necessary evil.
Depending on the risk profile, as many as half of the positive results of some types of tests could be false. This is causing mothers to abort perfectly healthy babies.
Promising new medical technologies are providing new hope to parents who were previously told their options were abortion or a painful life for their baby.
For babies with abnormalities, perinatal hospice is an option. For mothers whose lives are threatened by complications, emergency C-section is an option.
The grace of each woman’s decision throws into relief the lurid jubilation in Ireland over the results of the May 25 referendum.
Killing those with Down syndrome serves no rational purpose. It is a policy born of ignorance and fear. Worse, what it communicates to those so affected is simply unimaginable.
Real compassion means supporting parents who make the difficult decision to accept their babies as they are, and to love them when they’re born.
We parents of disabled children know the pain. The fear. And the pull of despair. But we also know the love. True love doesn’t take the ‘out’ provided by a ‘compassionate’ doctor.
