The Impact of KIDS

Thanks to Dave Andrusko for covering our KIDS event, along with the AP article on genetic testing, in his NRLC News and Views column last week: The Impact of "KIDS"      From the AP article:

"If a society is so willing to screen aggressively to find these genes and then to potentially have to abort the fetuses....what does that say about the value of the lives of those people living with the diseases?"

March for Life 2010 was a success!

Thank you for those who attended our reception with Rep Cathy McMorris Rogers at the National Right to Life Committee headquarters on January 22nd.  Cathy brought along her son Cole and spent about a half-hour visiting with our families.  She spoke to us about legislation and issues affecting individuals with Down syndrome.  We are grateful to Cathy for being our special guest at the KIDS event! 

After the reception, we took  to the streets with our banner, signs, and blue and yellow scarves and made an impression on the participants.  It was a thrill be among the sea of pro-lifers in the March for Life.  We were all proud to represent individuals with Down syndrome, raising awareness about the high abortion rate of these precious babies and sharing the joy our children bring to our lives.

We are very appreciateive of NRLC for inviting us to hold our event at their offices and for providing sandwiches and refreshments!
