Foreign Minister voices concern for plight of Down's babies

95% of Down's babies are aborted before birth.

Foreign officer minister, and father of Down's Syndrome boy, Brian Wilson, has spoken out about the policy for testing for Down's with amniocentesis, with a view to aborting affected foetuses.

Argues Mr Wilson, 'Our obsession with achieving an 'assumed social good' means that four times as many non Down's children are born.'

He is referring to the high incidences of miscarriages that occur as a direct result of the amnio test, destroying healthy foetuses.

Mr Wilson not only finds it 'grotesque' that 95% of Down's babies are aborted before birth, but also points out that the survival of so few makes it harder for those Down’s children who make it, saying, 'There is a double jeopardy for the few who do make it into the world, because there are so few of them, and less pressure to do very much for them'.
