This story highlights the pressures and difficulties parents face when they are given the choice of carrying a pregnancy to term or terminating it. It is written by a parent who has three children who have degenerative disability, each of whom brought happiness and joy to their lives. She feels professional advice is geared towards terminating the pregnancy when there is knowledge of a disability, and that there should be a lot more information provided about services and supports which are available to such children and their families.
