Massive Failure Rate of Prenatal Testing

This week we’re talking about pressure on parents by the medical community to abort at the first sign of a pregnancy challenge.  Doctors commonly push for prenatal testing so parents can abort babies with medical conditions.  The New York Times, an ardent supporter of abortion, just released shocking information that these medical tests are “usually wrong.”  Tests for missing pieces of chromosomes called microdeletions have a shocking average failure rate of eighty-five percent.  We’re talking about targeting and aborting huge numbers of preborn children.  One large test maker is Natera that in 2020 tested about 10% of America’s pregnant women.  Imagine the enormous loss of life of healthy babies. But regardless of their medical condition, unborn babies should be protected and loved.
