What on earth do you reply when your adult child says :”but why???” after you’ve had to disclose to them that really, the world doesn’t want more people like them? 😡How do you safeguard their mental health🤔? Google and Alexia were useless 😜! I struggled 😭. Wouldn’t you? Uncensored, highly controversial in places, totally religion-free, full of finger-pointing but also pointing at solutions. NIPT, selective terminations, divorce, marriage, siblings, the medical professionals‘ narrative, the governments’ narrative, it’s all in there. 
"To all the haters and the trolls, I would like to invite you to get up from behind the anonymity of your high speed,vaseline-covered keyboards..." "Clutters of cells with DS are worth a fortune. Individuals with DS cost a fortune. It's a no brainer." 
"Choice. The magic word. It keeps everybody at bay while everything is being geared up towards the 'right' decision".
