This 11-Year-Old Just Helped a Governor Sign a Bill to Stop Aborting Babies With Down Syndrome
We have a young heroine for life in our state.
Her name is Chloe Kondrich, and she has Down syndrome. The 11-year-old and her family have made it their mission to educate people about the precious value of individuals with Down syndrome. The family received our Pennsylvania Pro-Life Leadership Award in 2011.
On Friday, July 18, Chloe stood with Gov. Tom Corbett as he signed “Chloe’s Law,” a measure that ensures Pennsylvania moms have access to accurate information and support when their preborn baby is diagnosed with Down syndrome.
Sadly, preborn babies who are diagnosed with Down syndrome often become victims of abortion. One study suggests that 90 percent are aborted. (LifeNews.com)
This statistic should bother everyone. Especially those who claim to be “pro-choice.” The majority of women choose abortion at a time of personal crisis, out of desperation. Abortion businesses exploit women in this crisis for their monetary gain.
Our thanks to all the faithful pro-lifers who stand outside abortion businesses day after day offering options to these hurting women.

“Earlier this year, Laura and I learned we will become grandparents this summer. Our children have been the greatest blessing of our lives and we welcome our grandchild as a joyous addition to our family. Our daughter now faces a more challenging future than her peers. She has our unconditional love and support.”
—Congressman Bill Cassidy, Louisiana
This was Congressman Cassidy’s response to learning that his unwed daughter is facing an unplanned pregnancy. Notice that he didn’t call his grandchild a mistake, a burden, or a “punishment”. On the contrary, his warm welcome is absolutely inspiring!
This is the world we have created thanks to the malformed and warped belief that women must be allowed to kill their preborn children in order to reach equality with men. It’s a lie. True equality is found in a society that respects all human life and those who protect it.
Do you want to continue to live in a world that kills 5,000 little unborn boys and girls every single HOUR? Is this the world you want our children to inherit? Women’s equality cannot be won on the backs of their dead children.
Reject the belief that we were sub-humans while we were awaiting our births. Reject the belief that our mothers should have had the right to kill us on demand and without apology while we were unborn. Forever reject the belief that some humans are less worthy of human rights than other humans.
Stand for equal access to the Right to Life for all human beings.
Stand firmly and unapologetically for Life.
