Hello, I’m 5 months pregnant, with what I have faith to be a beautiful healthy boy.
Every time I go to the doctor, they ask me if I want to get the down syndrome exam for my baby. I been asked a total of 4 times.
Today, was the fourth time when I finally had the Initiative to ask… Why do you ask if I want to have a down syndrome exam? Is my baby ok? I been ask too many times. Doctor answered, “we ask all women over 35.” I replied with a concern voice, “don’t you think that’s a bad thing to ask, you only give an expecting mother stress about her baby not being normal. Besides, what do you get out of the rresults? What if the results come back positive? What then? What can you do about it!?” He stopped what he was doing, looked at me and said with a most straightforward answer, “we would give you an option to abort.” My jaw literally dropped!
Yours Truly, Ms Lovely
