Being married to an obstetrician, I’ve long been aware of the search and destroy mission conducted by many in the medical world on unborn children with genetic defects. With regard to Down Syndrome children, the trend has been so pronounced that I expect to hear within a few decades that there are perhaps no more than 10% as many as there once were. This will be declared a victory for public health.
Today, we had the image of Sarah Palin, age 44, with four of her five children, including her youngest, Trig, who has Down Syndrome. God bless this woman for her simple choice to bring life into the world. I pray that message will resonate more than any other.
