I also read through that thread and find it frightening that this person is saying that she is a nurse. Her information on Down syndrome is so completely wrong and I find it interesting that after being challenged she says her husband is a geneticist to try and make her more credible.
Please be careful about taking advice from people posing as health care professionals on the internet...this "Elizabeth" is way WAY off base!

: I just wanted you to know that I've requested for that thread to be removed. It is sad and horrendus, and I would never want anyone who is pregnant with a child w/DS or just had one to read that information that you posted. I have posted places for people to go and get correct information, please, it is hard enough, then to read something like that and even think for a second it could be faulted to either parent. It is really very serious, and again, I invite you to visit www.ndss.org, or www.ds-health.com so you may read correct information. No one is taking any shots at you, at least I'm not, I only want education on the matter.
