Mom of child with Down syndrome to Disney: Feature disabled characters

by Carder Disney does a great job of depicting right from wrong. It has long providing wonderful moral lessons that teach our children to be good people — but sadly, the company comes up short in one critical area. Its movies have almost no representation of disabled people, those often bullied and looked down upon […]

The landmark ruling, avian law experts confirmed, ends the long-established ban on procedures that involve the […]

Emmanuel Bishop, Down syndrome advocate

Given my experience at Christ Hospital, I have a particular soft spot for people with Down syndrome.

I remember meeting Emmanual Bishop at a pro-life conference 10 years ago when he was five years old. I have enjoyed receiving periodic emails about Emmanuel’s progress from his father, Victor, ever since.

Well, I received one yesterday that blew me away. It had to do with a keynote address Emmanuel, now 15, gave at the Trisomy 21: Down Syndrome in the 21st Century Conference in Houston, Texas, in February.

Glenn Beck did NOT sit here

Last night the United Republican Fund hosted RightNation2010, a conservative convention on the northwest side of Chicago featuring Glenn Beck. An email went out asking if anyone had a stool that Beck could sit on, and I responded, sure! I was excited to think that forever more I could point to my bar stool and […]

Mark calendars for pro-life protest at NAACP convention, Ginsburg vs. Hallmark

Earlier this month the Los Angeles NAACP engaged in utter foolishness and time wastage, claiming a Hallmark graduation card that had been on the shelves for 3 years was racist because of “black holes” verbiage, when the theme of the card was clearly about the solar system, not “black whores”… allowscriptaccess=”always” allownetworking=”all” allowfullscreen=”true” src=”http://cdn.abclocal.go.com/static/flash/embeddedPlayer/swf/otvEmLoader.swf?version=&station=kabc&section=&mediaId=7475695&cdnRoot=http://cdn.abclocal.go.com&webRoot=http://abclocal.go.com&site=”/> I’m […]

viv albertineMum suggests adoption, but I think that’s crueller than death. That’s my opinion. To burden a child with abandonment and rejection right from the start. A living death. All or nothing, that’s me. I choose nothing. Nothingness for baby. I think this is a responsible decision.

I will not countenance any other option.

~ The Slits’ Viv Albertine describing her decision to abort as excerpted from her memoir Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys.: A Memoir, via Vulture, November 24
