I pray each night with my beautiful daughter Chloe before she goes to sleep, and we always finish with the Lord’s Prayer. I have recently focused on 4 words of this prayer as our world rapidly plunges into total darkness: “Deliver us from evil.”
My daughter Chloe was born with a postnatal diagnosis of Down syndrome in 2003, and in 13 years she has brought nothing but love, light, joy and purity into the countless lives she has touched.
The most dangerous time in the LIFE of a child with Down syndrome is the period when they receive a prenatal diagnosis to the moment when they are delivered into this world. Our lost, misguided culture currently targets and terminates 70-90% of children like my daughter who receive a prenatal diagnosis.
These awesome, amazing children struggle to be delivered from the Evil of prenatal prejudice, bigotry, and profiling that is rendering a death sentence to innocent human beings our broken society desperately needs.
“Deliver us from Evil” is a cry you would hear from children receiving a death verdict in the womb once diagnosed with Down syndrome, and isn’t it time we end this silent eugenic movement?
Nothing will reverse the collapse of our civilization until we defend and protect our most vulnerable citizens. If we can legally eliminate children in the womb viewed as imperfect then what will stop this prenatal genocide from spreading to a postnatal diagnosis that does not meet cultural mandates for perfection?
One day we will be held eternally accountable for what we did or didn’t do to stop this evil slaughter.
Proverbs 31:8-9 “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves”
