KIDS 2015!

It is that time of year again!  The March for Life will be held on Thursday, January 22, 2015.  Once again, KIDS will be there, representing those unborn babies with Down syndrome. 

We invite individuals with Down syndrome, and their families and friends, or anyone who wants to support this special group of individuals, to join us walking together in the March for Life.  KIDS signs will be provided.

 We will meet from 10:30 am. to Noon, at the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) headquarters, which is located at 512 10th Street, NW, Washington, DC.  NRLC generously provides our group with sandwiches, refreshments, and beverages.  At about noon, we will walk the few blocks to the March for Life rally and join the March once it starts moving.

If you would like to join us, it would be helpful to send an e-mail to either Leticia or Eileen, just so we have an idea of how many to expect.  But if you decide at the last minute to join us, please come anyway.  Hope to see you there!

'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!
