Celebrate Life - Especially God's Special Children
Sadly, today most handicapped children discovered in the womb are aborted. Down Syndrome children who are easily detected in utero are most vulnerable. Dr. Jerome LeJeune, the physician who discovered the cause of DS, was appalled that his work was used as a search and destroy mission to kill these precious children before birth. After pinpointing the cause of DS to an extra chromosome, he spent the rest of his life trying to find a cure. He said it would be easier to cure Down's than to send a man to the moon.
Dr. LeJeune died in 1994 and has been named a Servant of God.
