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:
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.
