    M462 - Down Syndrome Screening Motion, Joecphillips seconded by cranbrook_aspieThis house calls upon the government to End the pre-natal screening for Down syndrome in the uk.

    Currently ninety per cent of people in the UK who know their child will be born with Down's syndrome have an abortion, we need to work to ending this as people with Down syndrome are just as valuable as anyone else and this is a slap in the face of equality.

    The fewer the number of people with Down’s syndrome, the less-well-known the condition will become. The natural consequence of this will be that the quality of care available to individuals with Down’s syndrome decreases, when many rely on the provision of around-the-clock care. This is not fair.

    There is a common misconception that all people with Down syndrome can’t achieve here are just a few people who prove this wrong:

    Dr Karen Gaffney

    Pablo Pineda

    Ángela Bachiller

    To combat this we must end the screening!

    It's a nay from me to allow parents to decide if they are best able to take care of a child with Down's syndrome.
