I would very much like to know in advance. I haven't believed in abortions in the past but if I had a child that could not survive me and who would be dependent on policies made by the GOP at a time when they are determined to repeal the ACA, I would at least consider putting that child out of its possible misery in a more humane fashion.

But separate from that, if they know in advance that there is a problem, a fetus would have a better chance that medical research could fix the problem. And that would be a good thing.
