2nd UPDATE: Even if Sarah Palin loses, society wins


I’ve been blogging that even if Sarah Palin should lose in her bid to be the next Vice President, society wins because Palin will have raised awareness about the blessing a Down syndrome baby can mean and the joy it can bring to a family. Studies show the overwhelming majority of Down syndrome babies are aborted.

Last week, the House passed the Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act, introduced by Wisconsin Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner. President Bush will sign the legislation into law that requires that parents be given the most up-to-date information on conditions and treatment for children diagnosed with Down syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, and other prenatally or postnatally diagnosed conditions.

Thank you, Congressman Sensenbrenner, for this compassionate and critical legislation.
