As long as it doesn't have a big nose, right?

Ma Beck, with the righteous anger of a good mum points out the nasty undertone to the comment often received by expectant mothers "As long as it's healthy, right?" As she points out, this makes as much sense as saying "As long as it doesn't have a big nose, right?" And she gives the best response "No, we'll love our child regardless of her medical conditions." Take a look at the full post which deals with the duplicity of pre-natal screening.

Take a look also at the post You go girl which has the pregnant mother quiz the doctor
But can you cure those things? Is there a treatment if the test shows something?
Every expectant mother should have that one learnt by heart: and then the "empowered" rebuff "I refuse the test."
