Which is more common - autism or Down syndrome?

Autism is more common than down syndrome - currently rates of
autism are 1 in 68.
There is nothing at all 'scary' or negative about autism rates - autism is not inherently bad, to suggest that it is 'scary' to have so many autistic people is offensive and prejudice. Down Syndrome is not only less common but given pre-natal screening many abortions likely prevent Down Syndrome births.
