One in Eight Hundred. Severely disabled five-year-old Emmy lives with her parents Martin and Karina in the countryside close to Aarhus, Denmark. Karina and Martin were given a low risk at their prenatal screening, of 1 in 800. The cut-o% is set at 1 in 300, beyond which invasive measures are recommended by doctors. It is unclear how this trend will continue, but current debate in Denmark shows how important it is to be able to undertake open and free discussion before implementing prenatal screening.
