Thank you for joining our Thunderclap. We’re glad you want to live in a world with Down’s syndrome too!
As you will have seen in Sally Phillip’s thought-provoking documentary, the non invasive prenatal test (NIPT) is likely to be introduced into the NHS imminently.
We believe that prenatal screening for Down’s syndrome, while recognising expectant parents’ need for improved testing, should be approached in a way that is respectful to parents opting for prenatal screening and the DS community.
To us, this means ensuring that there is a framework in place to support families undertaking the test including access to genetic counselling and up to date, unbiased information about Down’s syndrome.
