the most common syndrome you have never heard of


you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that 22q11.2 was a postcode or password. my guess is you wouldn’t have thought it was the most prevalent syndrome of its kind.so let’s talk about “22q”. everyone has 23 pairs of chromosomes – that’s 46 all together. chromosomes are made of genes, which themselves are built of dna. think of a chromosome as a complete puzzle: the genes are the individual pieces and the dna is the pattern or picture. when the different pieces are fixed together, they create a complete chromosome. in people with a genetic syndrome like 22q, a piece of the puzzle is missing, leaving the picture incomplete.in 22q, the missing section is found on the “q arm” of the 22nd chromosome, at a position identified as 11.2 which combined becomes 22q11.2. the missing section can differ i

trump should ask denmark's pm why his government pushes genocide


the prime minister of denmark, lars lokke rasmussen, is scheduled to visit the white house this thursday to discuss with president trump “our strong bilateral relationship and how we can progress on our shared priorities.”those priorities are said to include defeating isis and deepening economic ties, but would they also include human rights? denmark has boasted that 98 percent of the country’s down syndrome babies were aborted in 2014, as testing for down syndrome (called a nuchal scan) has been offered to all danish pregnant women for over a decade now. the number of abortions of babies diagnosed with ds has skyrocketed, and denmark hopes to be “down syndrome free” within the next 10 years.that’s the systematic promotion of eliminating individuals with specific genetic markers—in this ca

majority abortion of down syndrome babies is a success for 'nudgenics'


a recent cbs news article covered the consistently low rate of down syndrome births in iceland, reporting that nearly 100 percent of women who receive a positive result for down syndrome from their prenatal tests “choose” (and i use that term loosely) to abort their unborn child.many have corrected the notion that iceland is “eradicating” the chromosomal abnormality of ds, as the original cbs article put it, when it is instead facilitating the extermination of unborn babies who possess it. if we are to lower the abortion rate of down syndrome babies in the u.s. (currently estimated at about 67 percent) and across the globe, we must look earnestly at how exactly a 100 percent termination rate is being achieved in iceland.why mothers abort down syndrome babiesnone of these terminations are c

when the president causes his detractors to act in deranged ways (2 letters)
