Pregnancy Termination


Some doctors judge that people with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus have a very poor quality of life, which may not be worth living.  This is a narrow, medically aligned view which disregards other viewpoints.  There are many potential medical problems related to Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, but quality of life is not only a medical matter.  Those best qualified to judge are people living with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and they are convinced that their lives are definitely worthwhile.
