Stand with the 8% – Down Syndrome Babies Who Weren’t Aborted
Patheos ^ | 5-15-2012 | Bristol Palin

In the United States, would you believe ninety-two percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted before they get a chance to take a breath? When I hear this statistic, it makes me want to burst into tears.  I can’t imagine a world without Trig — he is the best brother!  (Okay, you’re not too bad either, Track!)

It’s crazy how in love with Trig we all are. When Tripp is acting up — which he does often! — I sometimes joke with my mom. “Hey, want to trade kids?” I laugh.

Willow and I always talk about how lovable Trig is, and how we’d take him over any so-called “normal” kid anyday! He’s way cooler than people with fewer chromosomes. I’d have a Down syndrome baby in a heartbeat, and I know anyone else would if they saw any sort of glimpse of how perfect my little brother is.

"Seeing little Piper hold him and stroke his hair made them recoil in horror."

I loved the fact that she licked her fingers then used them to comb his hair. Most of us mothers can relate to that. :-)

“........Trig was a reminder to liberals that all life is precious.”

Bears repeating.

>> If 0bamacare becomes fully implemented,
some panel in some far off office will tell anyone who has a diagnosed Downs baby - “abort it or get no medical care for it ever”. <<

.
The plan is to end all medical care anyway.
