To the Editor: I refer to the recent letter by De Costa and Calcutt1 about diagnosis and management of possible Down syndrome pregnancies in remote areas of Queensland, and more specifically the lack of abortion facilities and cost of travel to larger centres for this service. Nowhere in the letter was impartial counselling mentioned.
