I received this e-mail the other day from a friend and it is the reason I wrote so harshly about abortion yesterday:
Please take about 5 minutes of your day today & read through this short article: http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2011/09/3844
The gist of it is that the people who are on our payroll in the Dept of Health & Human Services want children with Down Syndrome to be targeted prenatally as a "preventable condition".
Down Syndrome happens at conception. The only way this condition can be 'prevented' is to abort the baby, which is what is happening now to the majority of these children in utero.
The difference here is that, following this tragic trajectory, soon it will be illegal for parents to opt to give birth their children with this condition.
This is where we come in. At the end of the attached article, there is a link to the HHS Public Comments page which is currently open. Please take a moment & fill out this 3 question form & make your voice heard. I know you agree that we need to speak up in unison to stop the culture of death whose primary pillar is that anyone--young or old--who is inconvenient to us must be made convenient one way or the other.
