Two interesting pieces of pro-life news really highlight how the next generation is advancing the pro-life cause.

A few years ago a Harvard student, Brian Skotko, did research about the lack of support that woman who were given a diagnosis for Down’s Syndrome received from their doctors. Student’s study fosters bipartisan legislation.He found that most woman had been given very little information and none of it positive from their doctor after being prenatally diagnosed with a Down’s Syndrome baby. It is no wonder that 90% of these children are now aborted. Mothers: Doctors Too Negative When Diagnosing Down Syndrome.

This study was so convincing that Senator Sam Brownback introduced the Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act into the Senate on 7/18/2007. Just last week,the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee approved the Pre-natally and Post-natally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act on a unanimous vote. The bill now moves to full Senate consideration– For more information click here.

The proposed legislation would require that families who receive a diagnosis of Down syndrome or any other condition, prenatally or up until a year after birth, be given up-to-date information about the nature of the condition and connection with support services and networks that could offer assistance. Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) is a co-sponsor.

The second story is about the pro-life students at UCLA and the unique ways they have of unmasking Planned Parenthood. Last year a UCLA student Lila Rose posed as a pregnant 15 year-old and entered a Santa Monica Planned Parenthood. She told them that the father of the child was a 23 year old. Instead of reporting the incident to the proper authorities, “The abortion facility staff encouraged her to “figure out a birth-date that works,” to obtain the abortion and avoid getting the man in trouble with the police.”

These great UCLA students have a new expose of the abortion industry which is making headlines around the country. Here is a description of their latest venture (from Kelly Clark): They arranged for an actor to call Planned Parenthood “development centers” in seven states and pretend to be a donor asking that his donation go specifically to aborting black babies to reduce the black population.

Sure enough, the Planned Parenthood staffers didn’t bat an eye at the caller’s sickening, overt racism; they were happy to process his donation. One PP staffer in Idaho even called a racist statement “understandable.”

This all makes perfect sense to anyone who knows that Planned Parenthood plants most of its abortion chambers in minority neighborhoods. PP thinks the way to get rid of poverty is to get rid of poor babies. They aborted more than 264,000 babies in their most recent reported year.

Really inspirational! For the record, though, I got my information from L.A. Catholic’s blog:

Comment by Kelly Clark

Thanks for the information linking Dr. Skotko’s study and Senator Brownback’s decision to sponsor the legislation. I’m writing an article on the bill, which has been referred to Rep John Dingell, chair of House Energy and Commerce Committee, but he has not yet put the bill in for debate on the committee.
I will also include Dr. Skotko’s role in inspiring the bill, thanks for the tip.

Dr. Skotko is a very inspiring young doctor. He seems to have continued his work with special needs children. I was very impressed by him but because of limited space was only able to point out what he has accomplished in relation to this bill.
