Limits on care: Prenatal care

Written Material
Download

This article raises issues around doctors' generally clinical approach to prenatal care which often does not include support, factual information or information on alternative options for prospective parents who know their child will be born with a disability. This article uses quotes from parents who question the assumption that a child with a disability is a negative experience, and notes that the old argument of the cost-benefit to society can no longer be used as a justification for abortion.
