I had no idea that the statistic had gotten this bad. A 90% abortion rate.
My mother – and her mother before her – worked extensively with children with Down Syndrome. My grandmother at the Sunmount State Hospital, my mother with a group that her church sponsored. They both got more out of their involvement with those people – and they are people – with an extra chromosome than they gave away to them.
This bit of news saddens me in a way that I cannot begin to describe.
