30 weeks? 40 weeks? In the birthing room? The first visit from Plunket?

    The answer is when they are born.

    I’ve tried getting the Children’s Commissioner, Barnados and other organisations who supposedly look after the interests of children to defend the right to life of unborn children with Down syndrome and they are not interested. This is part of the reply from Murray Edridge, “It is rare for Every Child Counts or Barnardos to comment on issues regarding the wellbeing of children who are not yet born.” They made an exception for foetal alcohol syndrome.

    Incredible! If that’s the case, they can’t even see the hypocrisy when it stares them in the face!
