Ther more I think about this, the more upset I am getting... must share.


I went to the building in which my sister (Shannon) works to tend to a client account.

The women that they contacted were from a list from a DS support group. Since medical records are confidential, how would they find the names/addresses of women that aborted after prenatal testing? I don't think that most people would support the idea of the doctors or clinics releasing that information.




Again, would you suggest that the doctors, clinics and technicians should release the personal information of these

They put ads on craigslist>

I have never seen any in these places. Can you post some links to these from other studies?




Again, I've never seen any of these in the offices that I've been to.

When I n=miscarried I was contacted by the research group at the hospital in which my D& C was done regarding a study.
They had already examined the fetal remains and found it to have trisomy 16 and wanted us (my husband and me) to join a study of our own DNA samples. I remember being taken aback that the fetal tissue had been tested without my knowledge and consent, and that I Was contacted in such a manner.
However, we did join the study since they looked at our own DNA and gave us the results.

So can a healthy baby.

I still fail to see how having a Downs baby is more beneficial than having a healthy one, which is what the question asked.

I look forward to your response.

"I am sure you can realize that it was an awfully tramatic moment for her. "

Obviously, not so traumatic that she was unable to point fingers and place blame on the medical personnel for doing their job.

Do they test the fetal remains in all/most abortions? If so, I agree that they should use that data base to conduct a study on those that chose to abort for DS.
