Lyra Christensen hugs her dog, Otto, Thursday, May 13, 2021, in Akron, Ohio. Anti-abortion activists say 2021 has been a breakthrough year for legislation in several states seeking to prohibit abortions based on a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. Opponents of the bills, including some parents with children who have Down syndrome like Lyra's mother Holly, argue that elected officials should not be meddling with a woman’s deeply personal decision on whether to carry a pregnancy to term after a Down syndrome diagnosis.
