New Test for Miscarriage

Bradley Mattes   |   August 29, 2022

Here’s encouraging news for mothers and fathers who’ve experienced miscarriage.  A new test, appropriately called STORK, was developed by a research team from Columbia University and backed by the National Institutes of Health.  It assesses the risk of miscarriage for an existing pregnancy.  It’s relatively inexpensive and provides same-day results.  Current tests can cost thousands of dollars and take weeks to get the results.  If done in the doctor’s office STORK would eliminate the need to send it to a lab for diagnosing.  It has an accuracy rate of 98% or higher.  One red flag is STORK can detect extra or missing chromosomes, which could be conceivably used for identifying and aborting babies diagnosed with Down syndrome.  I pray STORK will instead be used to save countless babies.
