99% Happy

Recognizing Down Syndrome Awareness Month, President Donald Trump issued a statement celebrating the “lives of more than 250,000 Americans with Down syndrome.

“All people are endowed by their Creator with dignity and the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  Despite some persistent myths and stigmas, even within the medical community, our Nation strongly embraces the undeniable truth that a Down syndrome diagnosis is an opportunity to embrace God’s gifts.  I stand for life – in all its beautiful manifestations – and I, and my Administration, will continue to condemn the prejudices and discrimination that Americans with Down syndrome too often endure,” stated President Trump.

After recognizing the advances made in treatment and therapy, President Trump’s enlightening statement continued:  This work, along with “innovative speech, occupational, and physical therapies,” helps “ensure many of our youngest citizens with this condition are able to live fulfilling, independent, and productive lives.”

According to the American Journal of Medical Genetics, 99% of the people with Down syndrome describe themselves as “happy,” and only 4% of parents with Down children expressed regret about having their child, reports lifesitenews.com.

Sadly, Down syndrome has been used as a justification for abortion.  As reported by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, abortion has resulted in the killing of about 30% of American children diagnosed with Down syndrome.  Even sadder than our country is Great Britain, where it is estimated that 90% of the babies are aborted, 65% in Norway, 100% in Iceland, about 95% in Spain.

“Every day,” Trump continued, “these Americans inspire us to live with great love, joy, and appreciation for our world and those who make it a truly unique and special place to live. Life is precious, and it is our moral duty to protect and defend it.”

“God’s sign is simplicity. God’s sign is the baby. God’s sign is that He makes Himself small for us. This is how He reigns. He does not come with power and outward splendor. He comes as a baby – defenseless and in need of our help … He asks for our love: so He makes Himself a child.”

Texas abortion law prevails, but society fails Kate Cox – Fred H. Summe

Kate Cox filed a lawsuit against the state of Texas, requesting a temporary block on the state’s abortion ban. Tragically, her about 20-week-old child had been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 (Ed­ward’s Syndrome), a condition which causes delay in the development of the unborn baby, a severe disability that may cause death before birth, or within … the first few years of life.
