IF YOU LOOK AT THE FACTS:
79% of parents report their outlook on life is more positive because of their child with Down syndrome.
99% of adults with Down syndrome report they are happy with their lives, 97% like who they are, and 96% like how they look.
^^ Ironic isn’t it? Considering how the rest of us schmucks seem to be unhappy with our lives and who we are and how we look. – comment added by me
And yet, 9 out of 10 babies who are diagnosed with a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis are terminated. That’s 90%.
And for the scared, hurting parents who just received an overwhelming diagnosis — they’re not processing the facts that if quality of life is the only consideration here, this baby will make everything in their life a whole lot better.
