We Rarely See People With Down Syndrome Because 90% Have Been Killed in Abortions
The latest from the PRO LIFE World...
When I was young, people with Down syndrome were common and visible members of the community. I remember in particular one Down friend I made while working my way through college selling televisions at JC Penney. Her mother would take her to the mall every couple of weeks, she’d see me, her face would light up with a huge smile, and she’d come running over for a big hug. She brought joy wherever she went.
Worse, parents who give birth to Down babies may face anger or castigation by their loved ones or community. Indeed, one of the reasons for the seething hatred of Sarah Palin, I think, was her family’s decision to welcome Trig into life. The Palins are pro-life and walked the walk, and for some reason, despite the paeans to “choice,” that blistered some like acid.
We call ourselves enlightened, but the search and destroy mission against fetuses with genetic anomalies is anything but.
Perhaps we could learn something from our ancestors of the “Dark Ages.” The 1500 year old grave of a child with Down has been found, and from all indications was a fully accepted part of the community. From the Abstract:
“The pathological skull of a 5–7 year old child from Saint-Jean-des-Vignes (Saône-et-Loire, north-eastern France) dated to the 5–6th century AD is described. Morphological and radiographic features, metrical data and Computed Tomography (CT) scans are used to study the osteological abnormalities in comparison with normal skulls of individuals of similar age and geographic origin. The combination of features is consistent with the diagnosis of Down syndrome…I’m glad for the child. I just wish we could welcome our brothers and sisters with Down as fully in our own time. Not only are we depriving them of life–with mothers often pressured to abort by societal prejudice–but ourselves of their joyous presence.

“Cases of Down syndrome in past populations are rare, frequently poorly described or discovered out of context. This case represents the earliest and youngest example of the condition in the archaeological record. The context and funerary treatment of this child suggests that he/she was not stigmatized by other members of the community, who afforded a normal mode of burial.”
King of Abortion: Warren Buffet Has Spent $1.8 Billion, Enough to Kill 3.6 Million Babies in Abortions
When Warren Buffett promised to make his tax returns public if Donald Trump did the same, the media loved it. But they refused to cover one key thing Buffett’s tax returns would reveal about the Midwest billionaire — his support for abortion.
While ABC, CBS, and NBC all covered Buffett’s endorsement speech for Clinton on August 1, they skipped the more than $1.8 billion Buffett has given to fund abortion.
Instead of reporting that Buffett has given enough money to abort more than 3.6 million children (or almost the entire population of Los Angeles), the networks promoted Buffett’s “challenge to Trump.”
The Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation has been funding abortion since at least 1989. Between then and 2014, at least $1,828,082,697 went to pro-abortion groups, courtesy of Buffett.
$442,458,401 went straight to Planned Parenthood.
Buffett’s abortion funding also shows no signs of stopping.

During Hillary Clinton’s 2008 failed presidential campaign, she claimed abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” But Buffett’s abortion spending shows he values everything but rare abortion (Clinton has since changed that stance, and Planned Parenthood endorsed her in January 2016).
All the networks skipped the significance of the nation’s No. 1 abortion funder endorsing Clinton. They also ignored other tell-tale signs of Buffett’s liberal allegiance, and merely called him a “fellow billionaire.”
Hillary Clinton: Make Christians Change Their Religious Views to Support Abortion
In a speech last year, Hillary Clinton lamented that too many women are supposedly denied abortions. The Democratic presidential candidate came under fire for that pro-abortion comment, but she also drew widespread condemnation for another remark in the speech.The comment had Clinton essentially saying that Christians must be forced to change their religious views to accommodate abortions.
“Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Clinton said, using the euphemism for abortion.
“Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!
Now, with the presidential election season in full swing, pro-life advocates are reminding voters about that comment and Clinton’s pro-abortion extremism in general. From a Washington report:
Gary Bauer’s American Values Action released a video highlighting Clinton’s statements on the issue, which critics call extreme.
The video shows clips of Clinton pushing abortion with statements such as:
— “I would like to see Planned Parenthood even get more funding.”
— “Deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.”
— “The unborn person doesn’t have Constitutional rights.”
— “The only people that I would ever appoint to the Supreme Court are people who believe that Roe V. Wade is settled law.”
