On October 25, 2017, Frank Stephens testified to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies about the value of medical research in Down Syndrome.
In light of the actions of Iceland and Denmark in forcing women who are carrying Down Syndrome babies to abort them-KILL THEM-this man’s plea for his own human value and the value of all people with Down Syndrome are quite touching and reasonable.
The countries mentioned above who are killing babies with Down Syndrome are Socialist countries (communist) who control health care and in this way force all mothers to abort such babies. As a result, people with Down Syndrome are almost non-existent now in those areas.
I think Mr. Stephens’ speech will make you understand that this ‘final solution’ is both inhumane and unreasonable. Abortion, euthanasia is never the answer. It shows our culture’s loss of respect for life and brings us to the lowest common denominator of humanity and existence. We lose out on many joys along with sorrows, pain but the wonderful humanness of life in all its passion.
