99. Our Response to "The Last Children of Down Syndrome" by Sarah Zhang

Only 18 children with Down syndrome were born in Denmark in the year of 2019. The article “The Last Children of Down Syndrome” by Sarah Zhang is exploring all the reasons why.. starting with prenatal testing. Zhang says, “Prenatal testing is changing who gets born and who doesn’t. This is only the beginning.” Today, we’re taking time to respond to this article and sharing our own thoughts on prenatal testing, eugenics, the idea of “risk aversion,” the hopes we have for our children, and so much more. This is a heavy one, friends. But we hope you stick with us for this important conversation. __ SHOW NOTES Read The Last Children of Down Syndrome by Sarah Zhang LET’S CHAT Email hello@theluckyfewpodcast.com with your questions and Good News for future episodes.
