This article discusses about a woman who was pregnant with her second child and through taking an ultrasound she had discovered that her child possessed an extra chromosome. She was 20 weeks pregnant when she heard that her child has the Edward’s Syndrome. Babies with Edward’s Syndrome have severe mental and physical retardation. Also not even 10 percent can survive their first year of life.
