    Palin's a Republican, right? Then why does he want Emanuel fired from his job just for using the word "retarded"?

    Something ain't right here.
    Who cares who or what the : I'm voting for?

    The way I see (especially given the risk factors at all ages) if you aren't going to be able to handle having a kid that's not perfect, you probably shouldn't have kids at all.
    No children are perfect, and no adults either. That does not mean they should not live.

    There'll always be those who are happy to take disabled children into their lives, and it's my guess that the people who do that sort of thing have more fulfilling lives then those who believe "retards" should be aborted.

    I'd say so.

    Thanks for your post.

    Would you recommend a woman get pregnant if there is a 1 in 20 chance of her having a baby with Downs syndrome?

    I don't go around recommending that people get pregnant or not.

    I would want her to have all the information, including the odds. And up-to-date information about what Down syndrome is all about if she decides to get pregnant too, btw.

    We agree. As long as she has all the facts.

    Was under the impression that the Trig pregancy was an unplanned "surprise". In which case the only issue would be the decision whether or not to abort.

    And that (abortion) didn't seem to be an option that Palin even entertained.....

    Yes, all the facts - and not just the vague idea that the risk suddenly goes up at 35 or 40 either. And not the outdated idea that people with DS are all drooling idiots who can't talk. Hell, some of them go to college now.

    Sure. That's a 95% chance that thing's will be fine. And, maybe they would welcome a DS child into their lives.
