Parents of Down syndrome children have been shut out of a nationwide series of workshops they say will help facilitate the genocide of future sons and daughters with the condition.
Last night a group of five parents handed out leaflets to midwives and GPs as they arrived at a workshop on antenatal screening for Down syndrome and other conditions in New Plymouth.
Protest organiser Suzy Dymock said she was kicked out of the meeting when she tried to hand out leaflets containing 11 “facts” about Down syndrome and screening.
Mrs Dymock said it was important that parents of children with Down syndrome were involved in such workshops to change attitudes. She said her pregnancy was treated as a “disaster” when it was found her son had Down syndrome.
“But it was a lie. Nobody was telling me of the good stuff, the truth because he is a real gift. He has got unconditional love and he is a real gift to me,” she said.
