Down's births rise24th November 2008
The number of babies born in the UK who have Down's syndrome has increased since 1989, when pre-natal testing for the condition was launched.
749 babies with the condition were born in 2006 - a rise from 717 in 1989. A survey by the Down's Syndrome Association showed that public attitudes to Down's had changed. Carol Boys, chief executive of the Association said: "Now there is much greater inclusion and acceptance, with mainstream education having a huge role."
