    BBC Abandoned surrogate Down's Syndrome baby

    An Australian couple have allegedly abandoned a Down's Syndrome baby in Thailand, with his surrogate mother.

    Apparently the couple told the surrogate to have the Down's baby aborted, but she refused, so they told her she can keep him.

    We're only hearing one side of the story. I dunno, it does sound rotten when it's reported like it has been but there might be a lot more to it. The babby needs expensive surgery, these Australians might not have had the funds for it. They might not have got there expecting to be handed one baby and found she'd have both and not had enough tickets to get home and then panic set in. I'm pretty sure that going through surrogacy is a huge emotional deal, I doubt anyone was thinking straight.

    Downs syndrome babies destroy parents. It's horrible for all concerned.
