World Down Syndrome Day: A 3-minute must-watch video

Today is World Down Syndrome Day and to celebrate, would you take five minutes for the following action steps?

 

Three minutes: Watch this video.

Karen Gaffney is perhaps the most eloquent and effective advocate for protecting the rights of people with Down syndrome. She came to Pennsylvania in support of the Down Syndrome Protection Act (House Bill 2050 & Senate Bill 1050) and delivered a powerful message. We just published the following video highlighting her rally speech – click here to watch.

 

One minute: Share this video.

Gaffney’s message is one we want all of Pennsylvania to know. Whether it’s forwarding this email or sharing it on Facebook, please help us spread this message.

One minute: Call your State Representative in support of the Down Syndrome Protection Act.

House Bill 2050 (and Senate Bill 1050) would prohibit an abortion of any child solely due to a prenatal diagnosis of possible Down syndrome. Lawmakers won’t act on this legislation unless they hear from you and me so would you please take a minute to call your State Representative today with this simple message (and leave a message if you get their voicemail):

 

“My name is Michael and I ask for your support of the Down Syndrome Protection Act – House Bill 2050.”

 

By our records, your State Representative is John T. Galloway 215-943-7206.

Just as Karen Gaffney put it during the Down Syndrome Protection Act rally:

 

“It was a wave of humanity that lifted us out of institutions, brought us home, got us into schools, and included us in the community of life, ladies and gentleman. And it will require another wave of humanity to STOP the targeting of Down syndrome around the world. It requires people like you to stand up for us and with us to help us show the world that Down syndrome is a life worth saving.”
