Spotlighting important information gleaned from other pro-life blogs...
"All too often women are given the impression that having a child with a disability or learning difficulty is the worst possible thing that could happen to them, when this doesn't have to be the case at all," says Norman Wells of Family Youth and Concern. This misconception has lead to a 71% increase in cases of DS detected in the womb since 1989, and a constant 92% of cases detected end in abortion. However, as Wells put it, "A child with Down's Syndrome should be prized and treasured no less than any other child."
Says Karen Garnett of CPLC, "We are calling on people of faith from all over Dallas and the surrounding suburbs to join with us in a renewed, massive prayer and public witness effort against this grave evil in our community."
My heart breaks for all of those Downs babies.
