#WorldDownSyndromeDAY: The Pressure to Abort, Just in Case.

March 21 [321] is World Down Syndrome Day.  As ‘no exceptions’ prolifers, we are to love them all; the sidewalk is not segregated. We are determined to defeat the scourge of abortion and bring better awareness that all of God’s children are GOD’s, right on the sidewalk of abortion facilities everywhere.

FACT: 92% of diagnosed preborn Down syndrome babies are aborted.

KEEPLIFELEGALIn 1997, I was 35 years old…and surprised with pregnancy I did not expect. I was married, had two sons, my youngest was 5 years old. Since I was ‘old’ regarding child bearing, the doctors tried to prescribe an amniocentesis to check for Down syndrome and other ‘defects’. I gave a resounding NO. I was already post-abortive and knew exactly what it was like to live with it. I said that I do not want to know if something was wrong – I would be his/her mother, no matter what. Doctors are way too quick to give moms the option of abortion – just in case.

All WAY too often women are given the option – over and OVER again – to abort their preborn child because of an presumed affliction. People only want perfection and the path of least resistance. Few give God a chance to be God.

A famous mom of a Down syndrome child is Sarah Palin. She had the test, she and her husband prepared for their child’s arrival, not demise. Palin said she knew abortion was an option but was able to overcome the fear of the unknown to go ahead with the birth.

And then there’s Noah’s Dad. What he is doing for his son Noah and his family is way more than incredible! They have proven that even young women have children with an extra chromosome. And Noah’s Dad has also proven that it’s not just his journey but Noah’s journey as well. We tend to forget that it is the child that has Down Syndrome, not the parents. It’s our job AS A FAMILY to be the family he or she needs.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” explains that WE, not just the wanted or perfect, are HIS [Eph 2:10]…..AND that EVERYONE has a plan that God has given them. Is there any affliction that God cannot overcome? NEVER.

Amniocentesis and diagnostic ultrasound along with many other ‘tests’ are there to determine if a ‘therapeutic’ abortion is an option, not to prepare for the child’s birth. I remember all too well the look on my doctor’s face when I told her no test. Ironically, SHE was pregnant, too.

Protect ALL of our unborn, remember to pray and come to the sidewalk…we need you to help save Down Syndrome….ALL of the babies. Click here to see other resources.
