I just wrote a paper on cosmetic surgery on children wit Downs. I think it is horrible. Is society so obsessed with looks that we have to surgically corrcet our children. I think that parents who have this done are ao ashamed of having a Downs child, that if they change the child's face it won't have to remind them every time the parents look at the child. the surgery is a waste of time, and hello!!! the child will still have Downs.
