Safe? For whom?



I assume employment at the BBC renders one immune to irony. How on earth could you be otherwise and come up with the following: 'Safer' test developed for Down's.


Scientists say they have developed a safer blood test that can tell women if their unborn baby has Down's syndrome.

Invasive procedures currently used risk miscarriage and damage to the foetus.


Great. Oh, just one question: when you've done this 'safe' screening test and discovered Trisomy 21, how safe will the baby be?

I agree. Another irony is that investors are all over this test because it has the potential to make them money. I like to keep up with news about Down syndrome since I have a 10 yr old son w/Ds, and I have gotten several notices from investment companies gushing about the investment potential of the new, 'safe' test. It just seems so bizarre that people are not only making this test, but that others are using it to fatten their stock portfolios. They don't seem to grasp the concept that already, over 90% of babies diagnosed prenatally with Ds are aborted..and that was BEFORE the new, 'safe' prenatal test was available. KathyR

Mind you, they don't call it an abortion, but a "termination". What is the point of these tests, if not give the mothers a chance to justify abortion?
It is frightening indeed.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real income.
It gets down to select a proper partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
