Well it's not really down syndrome. Down syndrome is trisomy in human chromosome 21 which makes it a human only disease. Trisomy is possible in other species too but other species don't have HUMAN chromosomes (obviously). I'm studying veterinary medicine. I know this ****.

Also, animals with disorders can only survive in a Zoo, the will get eaten easily or starve to death in the wild.   
Kinda selection.

I'll tell you a story.
there was once white tigress who was born at the zoo. he was very pretty and people wanted to have more white tigers, and they mated him whit normal tigers but all produced cubs were normal color, so they took white tiger and one of white tigers daughter and they breed them together and only then got white cubs, and all white tigers which we see in zoos are the origin of that same tiger. the end

and this is why this miserable tiger has down syndrome

Shame that tiger doesn't have down syndrome
I shall explain, Siberian tigers in captive are on this world by mutation (**** off christfags)
And this mutation changes the pigment it the fur. Now Zoos keep them because a white tiger brings more people into the zoo so they get more money.
The way the Siberian tiger is bred is through intense inbreeding
And as you should know inbreeding can result in the crossing of recessive bad alleles being expressed in the phenotypes. The tigers that look healthy and actually are healthy are shown on display, and some of the tigers end up like this poor cunt with a flat face.
Not down syndrome. Inbred.

There really isn't any need to bring more downies into the world these days. Just go for the proper checkups when pregnant and if they say there is a high chance of genetic problems abort and try again.

Life may be precious, but downies have a truly **** time of it and justput a burden on everyone around them.

Eugenics is not an inherantly evil thing. In fact it was popular all over the world before the Nazis. They decided to follow an extreme version and the ideas have fallen out of favour since because people are stupid and let the extremes warp their views of things.

Advocating the abortion of high risk babies is not facist, it's advancement of medicine. Should we allow a child to just deal with polio and the lifetime crippling? No we solve the issue. Should we allow severely disabled babies to be born only to die of agony or live sup-par lives? No. The knee jerk reaction whenever somebody mentions something like this is "OH NO TEH NAZIS R BAK!1!" yet I guarantee if you spent 6 months on a ward dealing with the horrendous malformities and problems with disabled babies you would be right on board. Nature is not all happy clappy, dribble-cute downies. Life is messy, disgusting and painful for them. You see them at their best, at their worst they hate life and make things miserable.

Was that a lecture? Given "Nature is not happy clappy". When was the last time you saw nature on it's own stop the birth of a "child" that might have downsyndrom. Never. Because we have the liberty and intelligence to do that. Don't try and blame your views on other people on nature.

Ok you claim to have some intellect, try putting it to use. Numbers on paper are meaningless if you stumble around looking like a moron when trying to apply it outside of your teacher's syllabus.

A high risk baby is one that has a statistically high chance of having problems. This does not mean that they WILL have problems but when deciding on essentially taking a gamble which could, over the course of a lifetime, result in hundreds of thousands of dollars and bucketloads of emotional grief it is sensible not to go with the lower probability. You were classified as high risk, yet turned out at least well enough to know what grades to claim to appear smart. This does not disqualify the statistic or your status as high risk, it merely indicates that the universe's dice rolled differently to the norm.

When deciding on policy or what treatment you absolutely NEVER go for outlying anomalies or decide based on the lower probability outcomes. End of.

Lots of thumbs down. Do you people think I'm trying to advocate bricking downs babies? As fun as that sounds, I'm not. To decrease the number of people with downs, which are categorised as highly disabled, in society is a good thing or do you all wish a random infliction on a number of the population?

Oh wait, this site is full of americans that still apparently have issues with abortion. Please go away until you wish to rejoin 21st century medical practice.

Down syndrome isn't necessarily that bad.. you can have downs and still function enough...

But.. as cruel as it may be I have to agree with an idea (somewhat) like this when it comes to children that will unfortunately be vegetables their entire life, if they were to sit and "live" it..
Because that's not living ... it's like keeping a horribly crippled animal in pain alive just because of your own personal conscious. It's cruel.
Down syndrome? No. Severe retardation? Maybe.

"That Bad"

Being healthy is better. It's possible to genetically test children before the abortion deadline and our testing capabilities will only get better in the future. It seems only logical to try and prevent illness.

Thats where it becomes a personal morality issue. I personally go with the train of thought that a fetus is not a person until it reaches a certain stage - I don't subscribe to all that fetus/person potential crap - and so have no qualms with aborting it to save myself and my partner strife.

I can agree with that, but again, the problem is that it's a possibility the child will have problems.
Abortion itself isn't a problem to me, just the whole probability thing.
It has a chance to be normal.. I don't think a mother wouldn't take that chance.

You, anon, are wrong as ****.
I had a great great uncle with down syndrome that lived to the age of 52. And he was the funniest, nicest guy. When he was born, they told my great grandma and grandpa that he wouldn't live to 6 months, he wouldn't walk, or talk, or read or write. Well **** that doctor because he beat all of those odds. The man was not a burden a day in his life, nor was he having a **** time.

"**** that doctor"

He was stating the most likely outcome to prepare his parents. Doctors tend to live in reality and the occasional happy fluke does not change the general trend. He saw your uncle and saw a standard, very ill baby and gave an assessment based on his vast experience. Maybe the week before he had to tell someone their child was born with the lungs outside the chest cavity and died in the surgery to try and save him. Maybe the day before he had seen another down syndrome baby die in critical care a few days after being born.

You are arguing from an emotional standpoint which has obviously connected with other emotional people. This does not make it an argument based on anything more than anecdotal data and ignorence of the real issues.

Good grief.

I think that's a nice story. But Anon is simply stating the taboo.

Having Down syndrome doesn't mean you can't be a nice or sweet person. I've had friends with Down syndrome, and some of them were really great friends. However, they could be a handful too sometimes. Does that mean I wish death upon them? No, of course not. But Like Anon said, we should prevent more Down syndrome riddled children from coming into the world, since they essentially slow down society.

Like Sabat, beneath me, said, you probably just haven't seen your uncle at his worst moments. Or maybe, just maybe, your uncle was that one special case, I don't really know. I'm not trying to desecrate the image of your uncle.

And this is why anecdotal data is useless when deciding on policy.
