Well this should already be in place, don’t you think?
There’s a big change coming for pregnant women: Down syndrome testing no longer hinges on age 35.
This week, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists begins recommending that every pregnant woman, regardless of age, be offered a choice of tests for this common birth defect.
The main reason: Tests far less invasive than the long-used amniocentesis are now widely available, some that can tell in the first trimester the risk of a fetus having Down syndrome or other chromosomal defects.
[…]The new guideline is published in the January issue of the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Now we just need to do this with HIV/AIDS as well, and implement it worldwide now that we are at it.
