Dramatic Down Syndrome Abortion

Gabriel Rosello

María Victoria Troncoso, mother of a girl with Down's syndrome, said that "these children never cause problems". The condition in mother aged 30-34 years has an incidence of 1 in every 800.

Europe is experiencing a quiet and tragic phenomenon: the pregnancy age is increasing while births with Down syndrome are decreasing. The cause of this statistical irregularity may be explained in a couple of words: births of babies with Down syndrome are decreasing because they are aborted once pregnant mothers are informed of their condition.

A doctor who had helped the birth of Ana's son told her the news: "her son has Down syndrome." Ana turned to her husband and told him: "We must attempt for the third one." The third born did not show any symptom.
