Amy Julia Becker – Author of “Head, Hart, Hands” & “To Be Made Well”
Amy’s daughter Penny has Down Syndrome and Amy is so glad she did not abort her but often women are counseled to abort children with possible disabilities like Penny’s.
“The assumptions behind our prenatal testing programs also condition parents — and society as a whole — to see our kids as valuable according to their physical strength, intellectual capacity and social acuity rather than setting us up to receive their lives as they are given.
We need to change our approach to prenatal testing by ensuring that pregnant women who receive prenatal diagnoses get accurate information about what it’s like to raise a child with a disability and expanding the awareness of our collective responsibility to welcome and support diverse lives.”
