On World Down Syndrome Day, noting a Down’s holocaust

Iceland (MNN) — Today is World Down Syndrome Day, and people are celebrating friends and family with Down Syndrome and the joy they bring. Meanwhile, there is a Down Syndrome holocaust taking place in abortion facilities across the globe.
Earlier this year, Dr. Peter McParland spoke at the Citizens Assembly in Ireland advocating for a new, non-invasive prenatal blood test (NIPT). In his presentation, Dr. McParland praised prenatal screening in Iceland that has led to the abortion of 100 percent of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome over five years.
