This photo has been blowing up my Facebook all week long. The captions read: “I have a really awesome life…there’s no prenatal test to predict that.” ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? Look, I am so glad this child has an amazing life. Their parents made a conscious choice to have a child, a child with Down’s Syndrome. Whether or not they had prenatal tests done to determine this is really of no matter to me. They clearly have the resources to take good care of their child. This child deserves an awesome life. But parents have a right to learn if their child will have special needs. They deserve every opportunity to learn about what challenges they will face in order to make an informed choice on whether or not they have the ability to care for their child physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially. This is the ULTIMATE prenatal test: The ability to make this choice, clearly, confidently, and in their individual or family’s best interest.
Here we go again. The pro-life, pro-choice battle that never ends.
