Petition to Pass the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act

8-16-17_Down_Syndrome.jpg

I sign this petition in support of H.B. 214/S.B. 164, legislation to protect unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome from abortion. Sadly, up to 90 percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. It is time that Ohio opposes this kind of discrimination against our most vulnerable.

One of the main reasons why abortion is so disproportionately high in the case of Down syndrome is because of stigma. Women abort after a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome because of the perceived parenting burden and perceived quality of life of children with Down syndrome. These are reversible factors that depend on our efforts. But abortion is irreversible.

Please support the passage of this legislation and help Ohio become a more supportive and empathetic state that refuses to discriminate against babies diagnosed with Down syndrome.

    I am proud mom of 20 yr old daughter Faith who has contributed untold good to this world with her Godly example of authentic unconditional love & acceptance of total strangers, regardless what they look like. Yes she has Down Syndrome. She has forever enriched our entire families’ lives teaching us important character traits of genuine love, joy, patience, kindness, gentleness, gratefulness, generosity, forgiveness and long suffering. She makes me a much better human being. And I am honored that God would choose me to mother her.

    What you do in Ohio will help the rest of the States! Please continue the “Good fight” to save innocent human lives. We are with you and applaud your life saving efforts. May God give you strength and determination to help save America from this eugenics-based policy, which Margaret Sanger wished upon America and worked to enact just as Hitler did in Germany. Which way America…the way of Hitler and Sanger, or the way of our founding Fathers who declared the Right to Life our first, God-given natural RIGHT without exception! I choose Life!

    Kenneth Olejnik is prolife and against the premeditated murder of children who have disabilities. Talk about discrimination and violence – this tops the list!
