A photo essay of our first March for Life January 2009

Here are some photos we took in Washington last January 22, our first March for Life.

Top to bottom:
KIDS members meet our champion, Rep Cathy McMorris Rogers (R-WA) founding member of the Congressional Down Syndrome Caucus. She is pro-life and promised to work with us to promote good legislation in Congress for our children. She has already succeeded in getting additional National Institute of Health funding for Down syndrome research.
Those in the photo are Anita Setran, Rep McMorris Rogers, Leticia (with Christina) and Eileen with Sadie.
Second from top; KIDS in the March for Life, on Constitution Avenue, heading towards the Capitol Building.

Third from top; more photos of us marching, didn't Eileen come up with a great logo? She also chose the blue and yellow starred scarves we are all wearing.

Fourth from top; Rep McMorris Rogers greets Sadie, Eileen's daughter at Blogs for Life at the Family Research Council Jan 22, 2009

Bottom photo; Senator Brownback whom I write about here and here greets my daughter Christina at Blogs for Life 2009. We gave both Senator Brownback and Rep McMorris Rogers KIDS appreciation awards for their speaking out for the unborn who have Down syndrome. Senator Brownback sponsored the "Prenatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act" providing education on Down syndrome, and referrals to adoption agencies and support groups for pregnant moms faced with a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome or other disability.
We met our fellow KIDS members at the National Right to Life Center downtown Washington, DC. Click here for an article and photo in National Right to Life News.
