Quoting Helen Baggett: well then you should light a candle everyday b/c 90% of DS babies are killed in the womb.
Abortion is one thing. This is completely another.
You are literally planning on delivering your baby too early that could survive with medical intervention. (babies have been known to survive being born at 22 weeks - granted it doesn't happen a lot, but it does happen). It is essentially murdering a helpless child.
I know you only came here looking for support. But I think that is a lie. You came here looking for sympathy and looking to get an "it's okay" from everyone to ease your guilty concience because you know what you are doing is wrong.
I tried to be supportive earlier, before you announced your decision to go through with it. I tried to show what a blessing a life with a child with Down syndrome can be, based on my personal experience.
And FYI - my child had a little bit of health problems when she was born, but that was due to the fact that I had GD while I was pregnant - NOT because of her having Down syndrome. Now she is a thriving child - no heart problems, no lung problems, and she is only about 3-4 months cognitively delayed because of the FREE
resources given to her for therapies and a teacher. We have not been to the hospital since she left after being born and she has no restrictions in play. Her quality of life is awesome! So your excuse of "quality of life" for doing this goes right out the window.
I am saddened and heartbroken for your unborn baby and foryour child you already have since she won't get to know her baby sister and probably willhave a distorted view of people with disabilities all her life and I am just so angry at you and "your family" for beingand selfish.
