Media attention on the dimensions of pre-natal testing continues

  • The December issue of Practical Parenting magazine out now in newsagents, includes an article "Think Before You Test", in which Fran Molloy talks to parents and experts about the implications of testing, with the introduction:
    Most pregnant women are offered a variety of prenatal screening tests, but what happens if you get a result you weren’t expecting?

The magazine is not available on-line.

  • Angela Blakston's article published yesterday in The Age (Melbourne), has prompted the publication today of two letters to the editor congratulating her . Click here and either select "page 6", or "single page view", and they are the last two.

  • A computer gremlin earlier this week meant that we missed this article from this week's US edition of Newsweek: "New Era, New Worry", marrying the implications of emerging technology, information provided to parents, the importance of the Kennedy-Brownback Bill (see this post) and one family's experience - illustrated with a lovely photo of two boys making the most of a fall of autumn leaves, as boys do.
