Take action on Prenatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act

Contact your senator here and tell them to support Senate bill 1810 to give parents expecting a child with Down syndrome proper information on support groups, adoptive parents, medical advances, and the happy life that our children enjoy.
Senator Brownback gave this moving testimony last Thursday on the floor of the Senate.(when you click on this link the player will display the time of the speech on the upper right hand corner. Senator Brownback spoke from 1:05 ET)
He tells the story of Thomas Vander Woude who gave his life to save the life of his 20 year old son Joseph who fell into a cesspool. Joseph has Down syndrome.

Thanks for keeping us up to date on this. I had done some posts on it earlier in the year but had not kept up with what was happening. I just sent out a special newsletter with this information to my email list.
