American women choose to terminate pregnancies between 50 and 85 percent of the time after receiving a fetal diagnosis of Down syndrome, according to a study published in 2012 – recently, however, Republicans in the Ohio state legislature announced they will introduce a bill that would ban women from terminating a pregnancy based on a fetal diagnosis of Down syndrome. Should the bill become law, Ohio would be the first state to refuse women the right to terminate their pregnancy on the basis of disability – it’s a large and sweeping initiative, so please be in prayer.
