At this rate, it'll be a hpg followed by a home blood test to check the genetics of the baby....followed by a home abortion pill.

In 10yrs time maybe?

Oh a friend at work (mum of a young adult with DS) mentioned this. She said that she expects the 'counseling' to consist of 'your baby's got down's' hmm

I think you're quite possibly right Manny. And there'll be condition after condition added as genetic tests are developed. Gosh life will be boring.
