Down Syndrome Awareness Month Briefing

March for Life Holds Policy Discussion on the Value of Every Human Life
Washington, D.C.—October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and The March for Life Education and Defense Fund will be hosting “Every Life is a Gift,” a panel discussion on how individuals with a disability live full and beautiful lives on Thursday, October 23, 2014 at the Capitol Visitor Center, HVC 201 from 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM ET. “Every Life is a Gift” will be the theme of the 2015 March for Life this coming January. Since developing babies who receive a difficult prenatal diagnosis (such as Down Syndrome, Trisomy 13 or 18, Spina Bifida, etc.) have a much smaller chance of being brought to term by their mothers and fathers, the March for Life Education and Defense Fund’s discussion will feature leading experts on cutting-edge research to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities and offer opportunities for a full life and improved support for their families.Speakers at the event include:

  • Jeanne Monahan, March for Life Education and Defense Fund
  • Mark Bradford, Jerome Lejeune Foundation
  • Chuck Donovan, Charlotte Lozier Institute
  • Dana Hecht, Family Relations Director, Jill’s House
  • Heather Trammel, Down Syndrome Society of Northern Virginia
  • Documentary Preview of “Flashes of Color,” In Altum Productions

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.  The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand.
