: 12/02/2018 - 13:39

A group of parents of children with Down Syndrome says they will continue to make their feelings known about abortion.

It follows concerns raised over the use of images of people with Down's Syndrome in an anti-abortion billboard campaign poster.

Down Syndrome Ireland, in January, issued a statement saying "We are respectfully asking both sides of the campaign debate, all political parties and any other interested groups to stop exploiting children and adults with Down syndrome to promote their campaign views"

Micheal O'Dowd of the group Disability Voices for Life says they won't hide their children away:
