I agree with what Breanna said. The most offensive thing said to me when asked if my children were to have PKU and I explained it would depend on my husband and whether he was a carrier, they said why would you ever do that to the child like Breanna said, there are much worse things to be born with. The diet has come a long way and is manageable and children can lead normal lives! Of course the choice exists here in the US, yes, however I would hope that PKU would never be the only and deciding factor in aborting a child because I, and everyone else on this site are living proof that there is hope for us and we are healthy and happy people!
