This 11-Year-Old Just Helped a Governor Sign a Bill to Stop Aborting Babies With Down Syndrome
We have a young heroine for life in our state.
Her name is Chloe Kondrich, and she has Down syndrome. The 11-year-old and her family have made it their mission to educate people about the precious value of individuals with Down syndrome. The family received our Pennsylvania Pro-Life Leadership Award in 2011.
On Friday, July 18, Chloe stood with Gov. Tom Corbett as he signed “Chloe’s Law,” a measure that ensures Pennsylvania moms have access to accurate information and support when their preborn baby is diagnosed with Down syndrome.
Sadly, preborn babies who are diagnosed with Down syndrome often become victims of abortion. One study suggests that 90 percent are aborted. (LifeNews.com)
Every frame of the Harry Potter movies, condensed into a barcode.#oh my god #look at this #how it starts off with reds and oranges and purples #bright colors #and then it gets continuously darker towards the end #it’s so fitting to the story #and then there is that strip of white at the end #which has to be the king’s cross scene #and it’s just #light #in a dark time #which is extremely beautiful
you know why theres a white part at the end? because happiness can be found even in the darkest of times
The Harry Potter fandom has officially lost their minds.
Can we just talk about the amazingness of the person who actually made this image though? Holy fuck that must have taken a long time.
Abortions because of disability get me so wound up and infuriated and upset that I find it difficult to talk about.
The more I work with and meet disabled children and young people, the more angry that kind of abortion makes me. Honestly it makes my blood boil.
And is totally irrelevant when it comes to “my body my choice”. These people often PLAN pregnancy then refuse to let the child live because of its disability. Nothing to do with them owning their bodies, just to do with them being ableist, immature, selfish and… rather evil actually.
I mean foetuses in general are innocent human beings but take downs syndrome for example, the popular statistic is thay only 10% of downs babies make it out the womb alive. Every single person with downs syndrome I have ever met has been loved and liked by everyone they’ve known, has been treasured by their friends and family, had been kind and helpful and funny. Of course everybody is different. (And I’m not saying everyone with disabilities are perfect because anybody can be an arsehole and how likeable you are shouldn’t determine your right to life) but they’re so innocent and loving. We can learn so much from people with disabilities. I have myself.
It breaks my frickin heart. I find it hard to even talk about. - Gabbie
Step 2: Duck!
Step 3: Head butt him in the chin. It’s very important that it is the chin and not the chest because it is much more uncomfortable and disorienting to have your teeth bang together especially if it cuts his tongue (which it will if it is in the way). More than likely height won’t matter. He will be leaning forward from the missed attempt at grabbing you.
Step 4: Knee him in the balls.
Step 5: When he doubles over, jab him on his back. I believe at the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades would be best. I’m not an expert, but this seems like the best place, imo.
Step 6: Don’t lose contact. Bring your other hand over and slam your hands against the sides of his heads as hard as possible. Right on the ears is the best place; it is extremely disorienting if done correctly. Then take his head and bring it down on your knee as you bring your knee up. It’s very important that you avoid the nose because if you knee his nose it will definitely break and more than likely the bones will stab his brain killing him, so aim for his mouth instead.
Step 7: Keep your knee up and bring your foot out to kick him over. Personally, I don’t like the image because it looks like she kicked him with her toes. You do not want to do that. Instead kick him with the ball or heel of your foot and put power behind it with a push.
Step 8: He is on the ground. You could probably stop here and he would get the picture, but if you really want to…Your leg is still in the air from the kick. With all your force slam the edge of your your heel on his side. It will be more effective if you lower your body first by bending at the knee of the leg your weight is on. Done right, you can break a rib or two.
i personally suggest checking him in the throat with the pinky side of your hand and stomping him in the ribs when he goes down but thats not very christlike of me and i didnt say that
This is Tim, owner of Tim’s Place. He has Down Syndrome, but he’s not sad or suffering. He’s happy and loving, and he shares that love with everyone he meets through his restaurant, where he says the hugs are more important than the food.
Richard Dawkins said yesterday on Twitter that, if you have the choice, bringing people like Tim into the world is immoral. He recommends having preborn babies who might end up like Tim ripped apart in the womb or given a heart-attack-inducing drug. That’s the moral and civilized thing to do, he says.
The twitter user who had originally asked him what he thought then continued to ask whether people with Autism should be aborted before birth if the mother knows while she’s still pregnant. He says that people with Autism have a lot to contribute, while people like Tim don’t.
So apparently, your contribution to society is what makes you valuable. Or is it your emotions?
Dawkins was quick to cover his tracks, insisting that he didn’t wish that anyone currently living with DS had been aborted.
But his comments still stand. He hasn’t backed down from what he thinks “the right thing to do” after a prenatal DS diagnosis is. In Dawkins’ view, it’s immoral to bring someone like Tim into the world. Despite the fact that our ability to care for people with DS has greatly increased over the last few decades and people with DS now have a much greater quality of life, it’s apparently immoral for their mothers not to kill them in the womb.
If Dawkins had his way, we’d be facing a future without people like Tim. I don’t want that. Do you?
There is a reason you don’t see babies with Downs Syndrome too much anymore. We’re killing them.
90% of them, I believe.
Another reason why Richard Dawkins needs a cactus forced through his urethra.
Unprofessionalism aside- immoral?? To let a human being?? Continue to live??? Immoral to bring a beautiful loving child into a world where they will be cared for and showered with love????
I call myself pro life but there’s a part of me that doesn’t take that stance with people like him (and terrorists and evil policemen and nurses that abuse the elderly) but that’s my problem I guess.
Seriously though. If that’s true….
IF YOU LOOK AT THE FACTS:
79% of parents report their outlook on life is more positive because of their child with Down syndrome.
99% of adults with Down syndrome report they are happy with their lives, 97% like who they are, and 96% like how they look.
^^ Ironic isn’t it? Considering how the rest of us schmucks seem to be unhappy with our lives and who we are and how we look. - comment added by me
And yet, 9 out of 10 babies who are diagnosed with a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis are terminated. That’s 90%.
And for the scared, hurting parents who just received an overwhelming diagnosis — they’re not processing the facts that if quality of life is the only consideration here, this baby will make everything in their life a whole lot better.
We’re all human and worth saving.
