Two Down syndrome babies

Posted Sep 22 2008 10:24am
I told you babies like my Christina would change the world.
Here's proof: A Tale of Two Down Syndrome Babies by Paul Kengor, a professor of Grove City College in the National Catholic Register.
How the candidates Sarah Palin and Barack Obama treated unborn babies with Down syndrome may just be the make-or-break point in this election. AMAZING!
Jesus told us we would be held accountable for how we treated the "least of our brothers", for that is how we are treating Him. It is my deepest hope that Barack Obama may feel His judgement on his sinful position on abortion before it is too late. Before more children with Down syndrome have to die, and our nation falls even deeper into the Culture of Death.
Here is Paul Kengor:
Obama’s intransigence was best shown in the eyewitness experience of Jill Stanek, the nurse at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill., who provided testimony to Obama’s committee in the Illinois Senate. To Stanek’s amazement, Obama was unfazed by her devastatingly sad testimony of cradling a newborn baby who had just survived an abortion. That baby was refused medical care. He was sent to the soiled utility room to endure a heart-wrenching, excruciating death over the course of 45 minutes.
“He was too weak to move very much,” remembered Stanek, in testimony for which the hospital fired her, “expending any energy he had trying to breathe. Toward the end, he was so quiet that I couldn’t tell if he was still alive unless I held him up to the light to see if his heart was still beating through his chest wall.”
Why was this poor, innocent, helpless little boy sentenced to this unjust, wicked execution?Because of this crime: He had Down syndrome.
That Down syndrome child was unable to affect Obama’s oft-expressed “least-of-our-brothers” compassion and protection.
But a Down syndrome child fully received Sarah Palin’s motherly compassion and protection. And pro-lifers everywhere feel the difference in this selective “social justice.”

As Fr Frank Pavone says, a candidate's fitness for holding the most powerful position in the world is determined by his character. Governor Palin and John McCain have the courage to stand up for the unborn. They have the moral fiber we need to bring this country forward.
We can see this so clearly in the stark contrast of the treatment of these two baby boys. Children who are considered the 'least of these' have much to teach our society. Are we able to listen?
