'Abort it and try again'

'Abort it and try again' 

There has been a revolution in attitudes towards disability in recent
years. Yet Richard Dawkins’ recent recommendation to abort a foetus with
a disability points to a contradictory zeitgeist.

KIDS 2014 at the March for Life in D.C.

Next Wednesday, January 22, 2014, Keep Infants with Down Syndrome (KIDS) will again be meeting prior to the March for Life in Washington, D.C.  and walking together with our banner and signs in the march.

We will be meeting from 11:00-12:00 at the headquarters of the National Right to Life Committee at 512 10th Street, NW.   We'll have a chance to visit and have some refreshments, and they we'll head over to the mall to hear the speakers at the start of the march.

This event is open to all families who have a child with Down syndrome, individuals who have Down syndrome, or pro-lifers who just want to support the right to life of individuals with Down syndrome.  If you live in the area, feel free to join us for just the pre-march event, even if you don't plan on walking in the March for Life. We'd love to meet you!

Help us to raise awareness about the tragically high abortion rate of babies with Down syndrome, and proclaim the joy individuals with Down syndrome bring to our lives!

It would be helpful to contact Eileen or Leticia (e-mails to the right of this page) to let us know that you are coming.  But even if you make a last minute decision to join us, please come!

Who wants a pre-born baby with Down syndrome?

The answer; almost one thousand people from around the world.

When I read the email, my pulse quickened. As the mother of an eleven-year-old girl with Down syndrome, I oftenhelp parents cope with the prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. This email was urgent,
“There is a couple in another state who have contacted an adoption agency looking for a family to adopt their Down syndrome unborn baby. If a couple has not been found by today they plan to abort the baby. If you are interested in adopting this baby please contact Fr. VW IMMEDIATELY. We are asking all to pray for this baby and the wisdom that this couple realize the importance of human life and do not abort this beautiful gift from God.”

Please keep Leticia in your prayers

Please keep KIDS co-founder Leticia Velasquez in your prayers.  She has eye cancer (ocular melanoma, I believe it is called?), and is undergoing surgery today to remove the cancer behind her eye. 

Thank you!
