Developments in medical science and technology enable closer monitoring of the unborn child - including the diagnosis of foetal abnormalities during pregnancy. What is the value of such information to the parents and what criteria should guide any decisions resulting from it? This booklet explains the various tests available, how they work and what their consequences can be. It explains Catholic teaching, based on the sanctity of life, and offers guidance on how to evaluate such tests.
