Thousands of babies with Down syndrome aborted in UK

I knew this. Not the numbers, but the percentage. If over 90% of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted in all western nations, of course it adds up to thousands. Of course they are being aborted way after viability which is 22 weeks.

Shocking new statistics have been produced in England after a pro-life organization won its bid to make some abortion numbers public that the government had failed to disclose concerning abortions on disabled babies.The numbers reveal, thousands of babies victimized by abortion merely because they were mentally or physically disabled — including 500 abortions done on unborn children who have Down syndrome. In total, 2,290 abortions were done on disabled babies with 147 done after 24 weeks of pregnancy.
  The saddest part if how few knew this despite my efforts for the last five years to make this known. God bless the Pro-life Alliance  in the UK who fought for five years to have these tragic stats see the light of day.

“The ProLife Alliance is opposed to all abortion at any stage in pregnancy, but terminating the lives of babies at gestational ages when they could survive is always particularly horrifying,” Millington told the newspaper. “We have always argued that if these abortions are permitted under law, there should be no attempt whatsoever to hide details of the numbers or justifications.”
Do what you can to spread  society's knowledge of this evil, its the beginning of reform. Just as William Wilberforce had to hammer away at the British public for two decades about the evils of slavery, so pro-lifers have to tell the tales of horror endlessly until they awaken the consciences of their countrymen.
All life is sacred or no life is safe.

I have two children with Down Syndrome. I find the abortion rate sickening, and I'm sure it could be lowered with appropriate counceling and real information about what it means to have children with Down Syndrome (they're tons of work but also tons of fun).

However, it is none of my business whether a woman aborts her pregnancy or not. It's simply not my decision. Nor is it yours.

this is purely sickening to read + very heartbreaking. i am a mum, too + i don't think i will have the heart to kill my own child even if he is diagnosed with down syndrome...this is very cruel. i hope they can find ways to stop this horrible practice.
