Abortions as a result of abnormalities detected in pre-natal exams have doubled in Japan in the past 10 years.

According to the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 11,706 embryos were aborted form 2000 to 2009 because of abnormalities - usually Downs Syndrome - found during pre-natal checks.

This is 2.2 times more than in the 10 year period from 1990 - 1999.
