Most children born with Down’s syndrome are born to teenage mothers. Women having children later in life almost never have a child with Down’s syndrome.

According to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the chances of having a baby with Down syndrome increase with the age of the mother, many health care providers recommend that women over age 35 have prenatal testing for the condition.

Sorry, I should of have put a bigger “sarcasm” tag on my post. I was attempting to illustrate how completely illogical the entire “Sarah Palin faked pregnancy” actually is.

Is THAT quote from the article? Total nonsense. The cases are totally the opposite. Don't know any teens/young women that have had Down's Syndrome children. Know 3-4 women that had late-in-life babies with DS, even a case where one twin had Down's and the other did not.
