Down’s Syndrome is not a “wrongful life”

From Secondhand Smoke:

Two Victorian couples are suing doctors for failing to diagnose Down syndrome in their unborn babies, denying them the chance to terminate the pregnancies. The couples are claiming unspecified damages for economic loss, continuing costs of care of the children, and “psychiatric injury”. Both say they would have aborted their pregnancies had they been told their children would be born with Down syndrome.

I pray that these parents come to realization that these children are gifts with much to offer this world. I also hope, like Wesley, that these children never learn that their parents did not want them to be born!
