When a B.C. couple discovered that the fetus their surrogate mother was carrying was likely to be born with Down syndrome, they wanted an abortion. The surrogate, however, was determined to take the pregnancy to term, sparking a disagreement that has raised thorny questions about the increasingly common arrangements.
Now this couple who wanted kids so badly that they went the route of surrogacy do not want kids badly enough to want a downs syndrome baby. To compound matters they are willing to force another woman to have an abortion.
Gotta love this quote:
“The baby that’s being carried is their baby. It’s usually their genetic offspring,” she said. “Why should the intended parents be forced to raise a child they didn’t want? It’s not fair.”
They wanted children but now that it is not the kid they wanted they are being forced.
