It wasn't that they didn't want a dodgy baby, they were told the child wouldn't survive.

Maybe read up on what Edwards Syndrome is.

"It was thought the baby had Trisomy18, also known as Edwards Syndrome, but a series of genetic tests later found that was not the case."

Maybe they should confirm the child had the disease before acting on it.

There were 3 sets of tests sent for but they acted on 2 (the most comprehensive test being the one where results came back after termination)

From a legal sense how can they act without all information being back.

From a budget sense why are you ordering third party testing without ever planning on taking them into consideration.

From what I heard about this case (on news radio) the first test said the child had the disease. A second test was delayed in being reported. This test had a different result.


Really sad that this has happened.

It's not a disease.

For all we know they (I assume you're referring to the parents) thought it was confirmed.

How the f-- did the hospital make a balls of the genetic test twice in a row?

How does that even happen?

The chances of two false positives in a row for Edwards Syndrome must be staggeringly unlikely, unless there was a mix-up with another foetus?

A user called seasidedub made two posts over on the A&A forum today on that very question if you want to go read them. I am not sure I should copy and paste their content here incase that is plagarism or some such

Really sad that this has happened.
Really very sad for the parents.

I have direct experience of a baby being born with Triosomy 13 over 20 years ago. It was badly deformed and lived for less than a month. Today, if I was faced with the choice facing these parents I'd make exactly the same decision they did.

Giving birth to a such a deformed and/or non viable baby is a nightmare I wouldn't wish any parent or newborn child to have to endure.

The problem here is protocol abs process which need to be improved to minimise a repeat happening again but regardless of how good the process or protocol human error in medicine/healthcare will always occur whether it is an early stage foetus or an 80 year old pensioner.

The 8th amendment would have given a legal right to life to this poor defenceless innocent human life, and prevented his or her killing. Sad but true. All the right on lefty liberal 'woke' brigade : are you proud now?

Not the same, A mother aborted her child that she (hopefully) wanted because of misinformation....
Totally different, so off you ride on your waffle train.
