Down Syndrome Survival Rate: 10%


Once a baby has been diagnosed with Down syndrome that child has a 10% chance of survival.  In other words, nine out of ten babies diagnosed with Down syndrome while in-utero are aborted.

Not all Down syndrome babies are identified before birth, so once all of the numbers are put together you are looking at 26-37% of all Downs Syndrome children aborted in the U.S.  The rates are much higher in Europe.  The overall abortion rate is about 25%, or 1 out of every 4 pregnancies ends up being terminated via abortion.

So as you can see Down syndrome children are targeted and snuffed out at an early age.  Very disturbing.

Please help us spread this information.  October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month and we should spread this info so people know those with this condition are being targeted while in-utero.
