Born To Die

Palin's decision to choose life could create a crisis for the pro-abortionists because others may follow her example and keep their Downs Syndrome babies and thereby reduce the number of abortions.

"Sarah and Todd Palin's decision to complete her recent pregnancy, despite advance notice that their baby Trig had Down syndrome, is hailed by many in the pro-life movement as walking the walk as well as talking the talk.

But a senior Canadian doctor is now expressing concerns that such a prominent public role model as the governor of Alaska and potential vice president of the United States completing a Down syndrome pregnancy may prompt other women to make the same decision against abortion because of that genetic abnormality. And thereby reduce the number of abortions.

If Palin's nomination accomplished one thing, it has revealed that the abortion debate is becoming less about a baby's right-to-life, but society's insistance that some babies must die. God help us.

I thank God for mothers like Palin and author Barbara Curtis and many others who have chosen to see their Down Syndrome children as a blessing from God. Curtis has 12 children, four have Downs Syndrome children --one by birth and three by adoption.
