Bias in the Medical Community

Bradley Mattes   |   August 07, 2012

A new study published in the journal Pediatrics shows there’’s a deadly bias by the medical community when it comes to babies born with Trisomy 13 or 18. This is usually a fatal genetic condition, with most babies dying during their first year of life. However, some live for several years, and the degree of the condition widely varies. The study says about 25 percent of parents of these children feel judged by doctors when they advocate for life-sustaining treatment. Evidence shows parents are now networking with each other to provide hope, and in the process, are impacting the way doctors view and treat these children. I’’ve just completed work on a TV program with such a family. Visit today’’s broadcast link [see below] at life issues dot org to watch their touching story.

Hope for Lilliana.
