    I also know that the majority of kids with Down syndrome are born to women in their 20s, not their 40s, by the way.
    What is the percentages of the women in 20's compared to women in 40's having a child with Down's syndrome?
    You seem to know so much about this subject.

    By the way , only a coward punk uses expletives at someone on the computer.
    In real life, you would not say that to my face, trust me.

    Telling someone they should avoid pregnancy b/c they might have a Down's Syndrome child is retarded.

    And arrogant.

    You wanted a number, I gave you one. The older a woman gets the greater chance of DS.

    There are many couples who have family history of genetic defects that decide to adopt to avoid a "possibility" of having a child with a disability.
    Would they be retarded in thinking that way too?

    And it is not at all about having a "normal" child that can someday be in a beauty contest like Sarah it is about not putting a child through possible multi medical procedures and shorten lifespan.

    But you know what, it is a free country and you can decide how much of a chance you want to take with your offspring. Have at it.

    This is certainly true. Something else to think on is that there are more Downs babies born to women in their 20s simply because more women that age have babies. For this reason a woman, say 17 years old, is not immune to having a Down's child.

    That's a terrible thing to say.

    No, but the odds are against it. I know a family that had 12 kids and the last one had DS. Instead of looking forward to a peaceful retirement they are still taking care of their child into their 80s. When they are gone, one of their other kids will have to do it. Some times it is best to use a little common sense when it comes to planning a family.
