A different approach to an old debate

This is an amazing article on Down Syndrome by George Will. His son, Jon, has Down Syndrome and his perspective is quite amazing.

I normally don't like talking about abortion because it is a very personal choice that has tremendous psychological and emotional consequences. And more often than not people react very emotionally to the subject. This article is different. It avoids the religious arguments that do nothing but turn people off and instead focuses on the moral dilemma of screening for such birth defects as Down Syndrome.

It's not preachy and Will approaches the issue from a different direction than normal.
