Abortion and Disabilities: 87% of Downs Die, 64% Spina Bifida

Posted By on October 14, 2011

From LifeNews:

The targeting of unborn children in abortion is especially heartbreaking for parents who have raised children with disabilities and experienced the love and joy they share together.

Now, a new flier produced by Right to Life of Michigan provides some startling stats in terms of the percentage of unborn children diagnosed with various medical conditions who become victims of abortion.

“Disabled individuals, no matter what age or status, are human beings worthy of protection. To say a disabled person is less of a human being diminishes the respect for every human life. The value of life does not depend on looks or abilities. There is innate dignity in every human life,” it reads. “Yet unfortunately, unborn and newborn children with disabilities are the least protected members of society. Masked under the cloak of compassion, innocent human beings are being killed without their consent because their lives are proclaimed not worth living.”

The chilling numbers reveal what Right to Life calls the “sinister side of abortion.”

    Dear Jennie,
    I have long wanted to find a way to talk to you or e-mail you. Your book changed my life, and that of most of my girls.

    I love Down Syndrome children!
    Our youngest has Down Syndrome. I had her (and all my children) at home, and had no previous tests, so when I first looked at her, I commented, “she looks like she has Down Syndrome. I wonder what that means.” My oldest daughter said, “We prayed for another baby, and this is God’s answer.” My children helped fight for her life, as she was born with a hole in her heart and a common valve that needed to be fixed at 6 1/2 months old.

    She has been a HUGE blessing to our family, for through her needing Open Heart Surgery we met two families where the parents introduced us to a marriage conference (www.witministries.com) that God used to bring REDEMPTION to my husband and our family! It was Absolutely Life Changing for us!!!

    In the beginning months we had to fight for Naomi’s life, but God worked miracously to provide money for her surgery without going to the government for any help. Her heart was fixed, and she is now 6 years old. Such a blessing and SO precious to our whole family!!!

    Those who kill their unborn babies because of what the doctor tells them will never know what blessing could have come upon their whole family if they would have looked to God instead of a doctor. I think there is already compromise in allowing a test that would show what defect is possibly there.

    We met grandparents of a child who relayed their story. The doctor told their daughter and son-in-law that the baby in utero had Down Syndrome. They said it didn’t matter. When the baby was born, he did not have any such condition!


  2. As the very blessed mother of two children with Down syndrome, this just took my breath away. 87% of babies are aborted after a diagnosis of DS? This is a tragedy not just for those babies or those families but for the entire world. People with DS are valuable members of society… they add richness and depth to the lives of everyone who is fortunate enough to encounter them. Our world is a poorer place for the lack of them♥
