I already stated why they shouldn't be denigrating...but that would require you to read a post before you respond. Since you clearly didn't read any previous posts with "freak" and "drooling on the floor" in them, as well as people using genetic abnormalities as justification for abortion, I suppose it was too much to expect you to have read my post, as well.
I did. Downs is a pretty serious condition though. In extreme cases the child/person will have to be monitored 24/7 and will never be able to function in and contribute to society. As I stated before, that requires a lot of personal sacrifice on the part of the parents, literally for the entire length of their lives (and beyond for others, be it brothers, sisters etc). You undoubtedly know this much, much better than I do.
I wouldn't be up to the task. In regards to abortion, in the end it of course depends entirely on what the lady wants because, as burnzz's wife stated, she'll make up her mind and there's nothing you, as a man, can do about that - I have no problem justifying it though.
