Eugenics vs. reproductive choice

Written Material

This article points to a dangerous trend to impose testing on all pregnant women with the assumption that where a disability is indicated, the foetus should be aborted. It challenges us to build consensus around the view that "a woman must... have a right - and more than that - the opportunity not to terminate...in the confidence that society will do what it can to allow her child to live a fulfilling life".
