I think it's disingenuous to say parents that birth disabled kids are being selfish...

DS can be picked up as a percentage, they measure the lips... it's far from 100% though

I have never heard of ds being detected by lip measurements? The NT combines measurements of nuchal folds and a blood test to get a percentage. If you are at a higher risk it can be confirmed 100% with an amnio as can other chromosomal abnormalities which are usually the cause of intellectual and physical impairments.

The NT scan is the usual test, but the sonographer with DD told me they also look at measurements of the lips and the neck at a possible indicator during scans.

Sorry I didn't word my post properly. The bit about mental disabilities was separate to my query on your DS post. There are many markers for DS but lip measurement is not a big one.

No. I work in disability and I love my job, but at the end of the day I get to go home. Before working with people with disabilities, I would never have considered a termination. I commend the parents and siblings who have the joy and heartache of living with a family member with a disability. I cannot begin to imagine how challenging, exhausting and all consuming it would be. After getting just a glimpse of this, I could not willingly ask this of my DH, parents and siblings.
