Surely, the question of termination or not is much more open and a matter for informed consent taken by the parents involved in line with their own conscience and moral/religious beliefs? People with Down's syndrome can and do enjoy full and productive lives and bring enormous joy to their friends and to those who care for them and for whom they care.
This society believes that informed consent means information should be provided to prospective parents on the quality of life of those affected by disabilities, not just on the disability itself or on the apparent cost of caring.
