Down Syndrome Abortions

Are we returning to an already extinct era, where human life is not worth living due to a neural and/or physical disability or illness?

(MADRID) - “They are children that don’t bother much”, asserts María Victoria Troncoso, who in 1976 gave birth to a precious girl with Down syndrome. One out of 800 babies are born with Down syndrome from mothers within the age range of 30 – 34.

However, Europe is experiencing a particular silent, yet tragic, phenomenon: the pregnancy age in general is increasing, while births with Down syndrome are decreasing. Why this oddity? Part of this statistical irregularity may be explained in a couple of words: births of babies with Down syndrome are decreasing, because they are aborted once pregnant mothers are informed of their condition. They are human beings heading towards extinction.

To that extent, a publication made by The New England Journal of Medicine, informed of a project conducting a new non-invasive test that will allow the discovery of the disorder at 3 months into the pregnancy. The test has an accuracy of 87 percent.

A medical prescription that had facilitated the birth of Ana’s son proved the novelty: her son was to be born with Down syndrome. Ana turned to her husband and told him: “we must attempt for the third one”. The third one, Javier, was born disorder free.

Are we returning to an already extinct era, where human life is not worth living due to a neural and/or physical disability or illness?

We are literally vegetating towards a moral decline, in which “parents to be” consent for the killing of their unborn children for having been destined with physical and/or neural peculiarities. This reasoning and lack of ethics and morals are of extreme offense and violation to human life, which root themselves down upon ignorance. Down syndrome is not an aesthetic dilemma, it is instead about the unborn and defenseless babies being held responsible for actions not within their control.

“I am 21 years old. When my son was born the doctors informed me that he had Down syndrome. I wanted to die. I was depressed for 3 months. Back then, the concept I had on Down syndrome was radically different. Today, my son is 2 years old, understands everything, and has begun to speak. If I was to turn back time, would have undergone the test, and if it would have assured me that my child was to be born with Down syndrome, I would have NOT aborted and would happily have had my child”…
