We can start with the death of Linda Boom, the Wisconsin woman who chose abortion in 1995 because she didn't want to raise a child with Down Syndrome. For some reason her doctor chose the obsolete saline abortion method, and injected the saline directly into Linda's bloodstream.
Then there's the case of Christin Gilbert, a teen with Down Syndrome, whose parents chose abortion for her, ostensibly for "health" reasons. They took her past any number of fully-equipped hospitals where she could have undergone an emergency c-section within the hour, with full medical supervision, to have her aborted instead at George Tiller's Wichita abortion mill. There, under no real medical supervision other than her parents, she collapsed in the motel room. Instead of taking her to the hospital, her parents took her to Tiller's clinic, where she went into cardiac arrest. She was pronounced dead after transport to the hospital.
And I'll close with Brenda Pratt Schafer's observations on a "partial-birth abortion" (PBA, D&X, intact D&E, The Procedure Formerly Known as Prince, whatever) to kill a fetus with Down Syndrome.
