A female college professor decided to have an abortion when her baby tested positive for Down syndrome.
“I’m not proud of this, but to be honest, I don’t want to cope with a mentally retarded child. My mother did volunteer work in the schools, with MR kids. She’s deeply against abortion. But she’s not against abortion for this. I guess some of her attitudes must’ve rubbed off on me. The thing that entrances me is having a smart child.”
