Our society will be worse off if we reject Down syndrome children

"The significant reduction in the number of people with Down syndrome is not due to an increased capacity among our medical healers to treat or ''cure'' those affected. Rather it is because of our improved ability to weed them out. Prenatal testing is ever more widespread as a way of ensuring human beings with unwanted traits are not born. Individuals and couples choose to eliminate those who have this disability."
