A Few Thoughts About Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day

Today, what’s left of it, is Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day. I did a lot of research today and not a lot of writing, but I’ve committed to posting every day, so here is my collection of links.

Did you know that over 90% of the time, when a baby is found to have Down’s Syndrome in the womb, the baby is aborted? That’s one reason why using someone with a “birth defect” to defend Obamacare is so hypocritical. No one on the right is seriously considering taking away the health care from disabled Americans, but Obama’s record would indicate he would rather they not live in the first place. That may sound kind of harsh, but I think that asking one human being to let a baby from a “botched abortion” die is pretty harsh.

 

On a lighter note, March is Intellectual Disability Awareness Month. Friday, the State Street Miracles will be performing in Washington DC. They are a group of adults with intellectual disabilities, and watching them perform is a reminder that, life may be a difficult choice, but it’s the right one.

And, if that performance doesn’t inspire you, here’s one by Andrea Bocelli. The first minute and a half of this video is beautiful and compelling.
