People with Down Syndrome have a joy that is hard to describe. Ever positive and cheerful, their love of life is contagious. They are God’s Prozac. But, with upwards of 90 percent of them being aborted following a prenatal diagnosis, it is easy to understand the abortion industry targets them because of their disability.
A bill in the Ohio legislature would give these children added protection. It would ban abortions if unborn child’s life is terminated because of a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome. The Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act (H.B. 135) passed out of the Committee on Community and Family Advancement this summer. Sponsors of the bill are hopeful it will be voted on the full floor of the Ohio House following summer recess.
This bill is well timed. The release of the undercover Planned Parenthood videos has put the focus of abortion on the child rather than a choice. Abortion proponents strip these children of their humanity to maximize profits.
