I know a non-christian couple who are going to have a child and want to help them make a difficult decision. The women is quite old, and there is high chance she may have a child with defects eg. Down's Syndrome. The doctor has asked the couple to think carefully about their options: 1) Get tested for down's syndrome - but the test has 1 in 200 chance of miscarriage 2) Terminate the pregancy if tested postive. The couple are in a dilemma trying to work out what to do. Do they even want to find out if the baby has a genetic defect? Or do they just go with whatever life gives them? If they do go for the test, do they terminate the pregnancy or go through with it? The chances of the women getting pregnant again would be very low. What advice would you give to them (in a non Christain way)?
