Welcoming Every Life: Choosing Life after an Unexpected Prenatal Diagnosis

Co-hosted by

Every year, thousands of expectant mothers and fathers receive the devastating news that their unborn child may suffer from a severe disability or fatal condition. Regrettably, many children diagnosed with Down Syndrome, Trisomy 18, Spina Bifida, and other fatal and non-fatal conditions are more often aborted than carried to term. How can we help more Americans see the inherent value and dignity of every life, regardless of dependency, disability, or life expectancy? How can we better support families in welcoming the life of every child?

Join us as an expert panel explores the medical advances in caring for those with Down Syndrome, the physical and emotional resources for parents of children with disabilities, and what policymakers throughout the country can do to better inform expectant parents receiving poor prenatal diagnoses.
