Alpha-fetoprotein testing: opinions of parents of children with spina bifida.

Abstract

One hundred parents of children with spina bifida were surveyed on the issue of alpha-fetoprotein testing and related parent choices, including abortion. A majority of parents responded that, if testing had been available, they would have availed themselves of it. A large majority would use the testing if they became pregnant again. Parents expressed powerful feelings in relation to whether they viewed abortion as an option.
