Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

More About Testing

Here's an interesting article from ABC News about the drop in Down Syndrome births coupled with the rise in Down Syndrome terminations. Titled, "Down Syndrome Births Are Down in U.S." and subtitled, "More than 90 Percent of Women Carrying a Child With Down Syndrome Choose to End Their Pregnancies, but Parents Raising These Kids Say They're a 'Gift'', it is worth reading.

It's a serious subject. I have heard it said that in one to two generations there will be no more Downs Syndrome babies. I was shocked when I heard that although when I stopped to think about it, not surprised.

That's sad to think about. Naturally none of us would hope for a child with a disability, but the article really brings out how many women opt for abortion without really understanding what Down Syndrome is like. I was encouraged, however, that one doctor quoted has noticed an increasing number of women in his practice foregoing the testing altogether.
