Early Decision for TIME Magazine

February 17, 2012 10:09 am

Last weekend I was commissioned by TIME Magazine to shoot a feature about the declining number of babies born with Down syndrome. Due to advances in medicine and prenatal testing, parents-to-be now know at only fifteen weeks whether or not their baby will be born with Down’s. Since nine out of ten parents who test positive end up aborting the pregnancy, there has been a sharp decrease in Down’s children over the past ten years.

The people I met doing this story were wonderful, and it was an experience I won’t soon forget. If you’d like to read the story, you can pick up the issue of TIME on newsstands today, or just click here to view it online.
