Doctors Angry Over Call to Abort Babies with Downs Syndrome

Doctors have accused the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of suggesting that unborn babies with Down’s syndrome should be aborted because it will cost too much to care for them.

The Daily Mail reports:
“More than 100 doctors, nurses and other medics have signed a letter attacking the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for saying the NHS should calculate the ‘cost effectiveness’ of supporting those with the condition.

Bridget Jones actress Sally Phillips, whose son Oliver has Down’s, also branded the suggestion as ‘dark’.

The row erupted following a consultation over a new, more accurate prenatal blood test for Down’s that the NHS is expected to approve. The College called for a ‘rigorous economic analysis’, including the lifetime costs of caring for those with the condition.

The letter from doctors accuses the College of ‘advocating that women with a prenatal diagnosis of Down’s syndrome should end their pregnancy’.”

Here is a video of Sally Phillips speaking about the misconceptions around Down’s syndrome:
