Campaigners say people with Down’s syndrome can achieve normal life goals. It causes some learning disability that can vary, and people may be more likely to have heart, digestive system, hearing and sight problems.

Ms Mordel, of Reading, Berkshire, said in the witness box: “I knew someone from work with Down’s syndrome. I saw how difficult his life is and I would not have continued my pregnancy.

“I would not have wanted a disabled child and I would not have wanted my child to suffer the way disabled people suffer.

"I wouldn’t want to have brought my child into the world like that.”

The court heard her 2014 pregnancy with Aleksander was unplanned.

Although she had been booked in to have the test, medics claimed she had declined the screening.

Mr Justice Jay said the sonographer had failed to obtain informed consent to go ahead without the screening.

Her initial question to Ms Mordel had been “abrupt” and her follow-up did not go far enough, he said.

“She knew, or ought to have known, Ms Mordel had indicated provisionally she wanted Down’s screening,” he said, adding Ms Mordel failed to process the question and her reflex response was to say, “No”.

The judge added: “Nothing I have said should be interpreted as suggesting that the birth of a child with Down’s syndrome must be seen as unwelcome.”
