How low can we go...
A “respected” news agency has an online post about new prenatal screening methods for Down’s Syndrome. Accompanied by a picture of a child with Down’s Syndrome.

Not only is the new test safer, but researchers suggest it will be able to spot genetic problems earlier in gestation than other methods.
Safer? Not for children like the one in the picture.

At first I am appalled. But, then, maybe they have inadvertently put a human face on the attrocity. Maybe people who see this will think twice about what prenatal screening hopes to do.

this is the sort of shame that will make us quake at the throne of judgement someday.
