Women may not learn of their baby's disability or birth defects until late in a heir pregnancy. As the parent of a disabled child who passed away at 22 yrs of age in 2014, I can honestly say had I found out my child would be severely disabled at 20 weeks, I would have 100% aborted him. A fetus can NOT survive outside the womb at 20 weeks. Not without the assistance of ventilators and medical intervention. My son was in the NICU for 2 months and he was born at 27 weeks.
