National Down Syndrome Awareness Month

October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, so the President issued a moving statement that read in part, “These treasured members of our society are sources of inspiration to the many families and communities graced by their lives.  …it is incumbent upon us as a Nation, to continue empowering them to reach their full potential.  The future for Americans with Down syndrome is more exciting and more hopeful than ever before.  As President, I denounce radical proposals to terminate pregnancies of unborn children with Down syndrome.  Our Nation will continue to emphatically affirm the self-evident ideal that all children—born and unborn—are created in the image of God, are worthy of life, and deserve to be loved.”  Well said Mr. President., well said.
