Down Syndrome “Genocide”

March 4, 2008

Surrounding the complicated issue of abortion in our nation, Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kan) is introducing a bill, with, of all people, Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass) that seeks to discourage abortion of babies who have been diagnosed with Down Syndrome and other genetic disorders. You can read the entire article here.

The horrifying statistic is that 90% of those babies that are diagnosed in the womb as having Downs are eventually aborted. Add to that fact that 5% of those children are given a false positive result for the test.

The bill, “would require that parents whose children receive a diagnosis of Down syndrome or another impairment be provided with the latest information on the condition and be informed of support services available. This would apply to a diagnosis on a child before birth or until a year after birth. The measure also would establish a registry of families willing to adopt special needs children.”

Children with Downs and other special needs are more then welcome at First Baptist Church. In fact, led by Esther Dennis, we have an entire ministry that is reaching out and is able to support families with special needs children.

Praise God for men like Brownback who are legislating laws that make a difference in our nation and who are willing to take a stand for the unborn and the sanctity of life that God has created.

    Your comment on Senator Kennedy is hateful. Do you know he has Downs sister. You should learn to appreciate all people even if they have different opinions than you.

    Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to
    find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!
