A recent article in the press described one
couple’s “abortion pact.” That is,
if any pregnancy had a chance of a fetal anomaly they would abort. The couple felt that because of their
age - she was 37 and he was in his 40s - they had an increased risk of having a
child with a disability and they were not prepared to care for such a child.
I was going to write an emotionally detached
post about this article, because I’ve had a few weeks to
calm down from when I first read it.
Yeah, right. I cry whenever I think about it.
