Editor’s note. This comes from Women’s Rights Without Frontiers.

By Cassy Fiano Prenatal testings and screenings can be great tools when used appropriately. They can help doctors assess potential health care issues and make a plan of action to give the baby the absolute best chance of surviving at birth. They can also help with medical advances to improve the lives of babies with …Continue reading "Doctors told her to abort Teddy, though 95% of babies survive his condition"
By Michael Cook India’s gender imbalance is possibly the worst in the world because doctors routinely abort unborn females after an ultrasound test. In 1996 the Indian government banned prenatal sex determination. Twenty years later the slide in the sex ratio has not stopped. According to the 2011 Census the child sex ratio fell from …Continue reading "Indian Medical Association backs compulsory pre-natal sex tests"
By Leticia Velasquez Editor’s note. October is Down syndrome Awareness Month. We will be posting stories, just like this one, all month. In an age when we value informed consent and patient centered care, it’s a travesty that often the worst informed patient is the mother of a unborn baby with special needs. Everyone she …Continue reading "Women Deserve the Truth about Down syndrome and Pre-natal Testing"
By Dave Andrusko NRL News Today tries to keep up with the latest diagnostic tests that are marketed to pregnant women, usually as a way of determining the baby’s sex or whether he or she has Down syndrome. And the reason is obvious! What critics call the “de-selection of our children”–abortion–is the result anywhere …Continue reading "“Oversold” and “misunderstood” prenatal screening tests “prompt abortions”"
By Dave Andrusko In a story posted earlier today, NRL News Today wrote about the twice-fold misuse of medical technology. First, using prenatal screening techniques to “search out” unborn babies who are almost always aborted if a “flaw” like Down syndrome is discovered. Second, aborting babies who are mistakenly determined to have a disability, …Continue reading "Prenatal surgery–and the unborn child as patient"
By Sarah Terzo Years ago, Rayna Rapp discovered that her baby would be afflicted with Down syndrome. She and her partner chose for her to have an abortion. Ever since then, she has been writing about fetal testing and abortion. A supporter of legal abortion who has herself worked in an abortion clinic, the …Continue reading "Pro-choice researcher admits that aborting imperfect children creates disability rights conflicts"
By Sarah Terzo In a previous article, I spoke about the pressure that doctors often put on the parents of disabled unborn babies to abort. One study cited in that article found that: … [d]espite the shock and grief they may experience upon hearing the news of a fetal anomaly, the pregnant woman and …Continue reading "Doctor’s explanation of disability risks in unborn children can be misleading, author says"
By Nancy Flanders My daughter was six days old when we found out she has cystic fibrosis. The pulmonologist sent specific instructions asking us to stay away from Google until our first appointment which was two days away. He said most of the information we would find on CF would be completely outdated. I …Continue reading "Mother creates comic to discuss the possibility of aborting her daughter if she has cystic fibrosis"
By Dave Andrusko After all this time, I still have to remind myself that writers (and certainly those not working for a newspaper) don’t write headlines. That’s why “My view: Parental pains, birth defects and abortion” can be so neutral when W. Brett Branham’s analysis and conclusions are so hugely life-affirming. I saw the …Continue reading "“Regardless of size, shape or differences, each unborn child is one of a kind”"
By Dave Andrusko We’ve written about the cognitive dissonance that can (alas, it often doesn’t) accompany a pro-abortion feminist’s failure to condemn sex-selection abortions—babies killed for one reason and one reason only: they are girls. But gendercide is not the only example of where people condone abortions when their own situation ought to scream …Continue reading "Cognitive dissonance and prenatal testing"
