In my situation, I'd be getitng CVS instead of amnio (done at 10-12 weeks, I think).  I would choose to have it done to determine if my fetus has Downs or has inherited a particular inherited problem in my family. Yes, I would choose to terminate if the test came back positive for markers.I can't understand why anybody would go through amnio to determine downs unless they WOULD choose to terminate. The argument that they would  want to prepare' is kindof bogus with the new ultrasound techniques. They would still find out well before the baby was born for preparation.  Was this answer helpful?
