Prenatal Screening Tests are Fraud

The US Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, has come out with a warning that non-invasive prenatal screening often involves “false results, inappropriate use and inappropriate interpretation of results.”  It further warned women that the producers of these tests are making claims they’re “’reliable’ and ‘highly accurate,’ offering ‘peace of mind’ for patients.”  None of that is true.  Quite the contrary.  Earlier this year I told you about a New York Times report that these tests are widely used but have an average failure rate of a whopping 85%.  The FDA press release stated parents were making “inappropriate health care decision regarding their pregnancies.”  We’re talking about abortions.  Women are killing their unborn babies based on fraud.  There needs to be accountability.
