“Whatever you learn today, please remember this… I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living.”
Frank Stephens’ powerful words riveted a congressional committee on Wednesday. Abortion activists and maniac liberals have been pushing for women to abort fetuses that show signs of Down syndrome in their prenatal exams.
“Some people say prenatal screens will identify Down syndrome in the womb, and those pregnancies will just be terminated. It’s hard for me to sit here and say those words. I completely understand that the people pushing this particular ‘final solution’ are saying that people like me should not exist,” Stephens said.
Abortion is legal in the U.S., giving the state little room to interfere with a woman’s reason for having the procedure performed. It’s considered perfectly acceptable among the left to abort a baby because of its lack of perceived genetic “fitness.”
“Seriously, I don’t feel I should have to justify my existence. Is there really no place for us in the world?” Stephens questioned.
Women can retain the right to seek an abortion without pushing the procedure onto others. Scaring women about the realities of raising children with Down syndrome is a common tactic used by those trying to frighten a woman into having an abortion.
“Sadly, there remain too many people – both in the United States and throughout the world – that still see Down syndrome as an excuse to ignore or discard human life,” President Trump said earlier this year.
“This sentiment is and will always be tragically misguided. We must always be vigilant in defending and promoting the unique and special gifts of all citizens in need.”
