The father of a child with Down syndrome made this video after learning the heartbreaking truth about the fate of most children with his condition:
All abortion is equally abhorrent and offensive to humanity. It targets one segment of society, the unborn, and deems it worthy of life only at the behest of another segment.

We should be concerned with making the world a place where people with disabilities feel welcome and valued, not trying to snuff them out of existence. Many wonderful advancements have been made in recent decades, but, clearly, more work still needs to be done.
