I have to say that my SIL (who is a nurse) was a bit "oh well" about it today and then added that is why she doesn't watch the show due to the lack of facts.

What i want to know is, they keep saying they have medical advisors. What do they pay them for,to make stuff up. Everyone keeps saying it is only a show and shouldn't take everything as fact BUT they employ "medical advisors",at least get the medical facts right!!!! doh!

Oh yeah, I believe they had medical advisors, but just because you have a degree in medicine, doesn't mean you know about genetics and Down Syndrome in particular....ggrrr

Yes but it turns out that the nurse consulted a geneticist (?spelling) and even their geneticist got it wrong
I just donít understand why they would consult, the different associations

They usually have new storylines each week with the only continuing storylines with the core characters....that's the usual...who knows what they'll do tonight.

It hasn't started here in SA yet.

The only way they are going to do something tonight is to say something in a commercial. There is no way that they are going to shoot a whole new episode about this. I'm not even going to bother watching.

No Apology. Stupid show really - one of the nurses told a patients wife that he thought she was having an affair. As if.

We bought our house off one of the actors actually so the only enjoyment I got was watching the actress for the first time.

I think an apology won't be forthcoming unless it's in the print media

Well no apology

But the story line was pulled so that is great, lets hope they donít continue with it next week or the week after.
Kimberly from AS actually told me that they had planned to continue with this story over a few weeks.
I told her it should be pulledÖ so itís a small celebration here the story wasnít continued

No Cas itís not this is what DSA had to say about that
Quote :
"We're not going to accept a wishy-washy attempt at an apology that's come second-hand through a newspaper," Down Syndrome Victoria's Catherine McAlpine told ninemsn.
"They must say once and for all that there is categorically no link between Down syndrome and incest.
"We'll give them the opportunity to make a retraction during tonight's episode before we formally pursue legal advice and write official letters of complaint to the show's advertisers."

At the risk of offending anyone, which i dont mean to do at all, but what is legal action going to do? PLEASE other than a public appology which i think is warranted, what is it going to prove? Where's the money going to come from to pursue it? I'll tell you where, from the money that these organizations have, to do positive things for our kids. So in effect it will be people with Ds losing out again. It's a no win situation.
I dont think All Saints will do it again scratch Lets put our energy into advocating for our kids in a postive way and not in a way that the general public will say "oh they only want the money" cause you know that will happen.
Ok you can all throw rocks at me now Rolling Eyes i'll duck ROFL

I kinda feel the same way Robyn - more so that a public threat may not have been the best way to go about it (not that I have any ideas on a better way), esp as I also wonder how they will follow up on it.

Not that I watch the show but I have heard they have shown DS in a positive light before and I wouldn't mind that happening again so I'm also conscious of longer term relationship.

Not that I don't think the outrage should have been made public (bloody well should have) just that I don't know how it will pan out now.

Agree, I made sure in my letter to them that I mentioned to other show with the young mother with ds.
I think the idea is more for a retraction, they do really need to retract what they have put out their, you know cant leave it like it is.
