“On one hand, almost everyone agrees there’s a need for treatments to help the 250,000 people in the U.S. living with Down syndrome, including the nearly 7,000 babies born with it each year.

On the other hand, it’s unclear what costs there may be to shutting down the mechanism that creates people who offer lessons in patience, kindness — and what it means to be human.

“If Down syndrome were completely cured, the world would lose something from the absence of that culture,” said Skotko, who has a sister with the condition. “There is something positive that people with Down syndrome contribute to the world.””
