What do you thin about the two? Here in Denmark there have been some quite heated discussions, about if its ok to have an abortion just because the child will have downs.
Statistics show us that the amount of people with downs in denmark is decreasing so fast that we'll soon have gotten rid of them all.
Personaly i think its ok to chose not to have a child for that reason. You'll have to be giving alot more of your time devoted to tha child. You might have to quit your job to take care of your kid.
You'll have to do so much more to take care of them compared to normal children. Even when they get older, teenager and and sometimes adult, you'll have to help them.
I wouldn't have a child if they had downs. I want my kid to be smart and independant as soon as they are able to. Now im not saying that someone with downs wont be able to, but the chances are far smaller then a normal kid. But i dont want a kid to be holding me back in life. When me and my brothers got about 13 years old, we could easily be alone home for a night if one of our older brother(s) would stay home just to be sure. now that wer're all 14 or older, we stay home alone every now and then with no problems. Our parents dont need to worry and can go out to dinners or parties with friends if they want to. if one or more of us had downs they would not be able to. they would either be stuck him with us or would have to pay some random person they didnt know to do so.
A little to the same side, if a couple, married or just a couple, are gonna have a child which will be having downs, who should decide if there should be an abortion? the girl, the guy or both? imo the girl should, but if the guy dont want it, she should by no means force him to have any contact with the child.
what are your thoughts?
