Alaska Guv Rejects Abortion For Down's Child

Item: Mom rejects abortion after Down syndrome diagnosis: Praise for governor: 'May God give America more women like her'/WorldNetDaily

More Info: Only one year into her governorship and with four children at home already, a child with Down syndrome would present serious challenges. Studies in the late 90s showed that more than 80 percent of prenatal Down syndrome diagnoses end in abortion. Ending the pregnancy, however, was never an option for the Palins. On April 18, Sarah Palin gave birth to a 6-pound, 2-ounce son, Trig Paxson Van Palin.

Question: What would you have done if you were in Gov. Palin's shoes?
