Will speak at NRL Convention’s closing banquet July 6
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation
A father and daughter, internationally known for their advocacy for children with special needs, will headline the closing banquet at this year’s National Right to Life Convention in Charleston, South Carolina.
Pennsylvanians Kurt and Chloe Kondrich are the keynote speakers for the July 6th banquet, which tops off the incredible two-day convention. To see a full list of workshop speakers and to register for this amazing event, click here.
The Kondriches have received worldwide attention for speaking out on behalf of some of society’s most vulnerable members. Chloe, who just turned 16, has Down syndrome. She has completely defied the expectations doctors had for her at birth. She has spoken at the United Nations, met with pro-life President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, and appeared with a variety of musical artists and leading sports figures.
She was also the driving force behind Chloe’s Law, a Pennsylvania statute which ensures that parents whose babies receive a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome receive information about resources and support services available for their children.
Kurt and Chloe also successfully lobbied for passage in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for the Down Syndrome Protection Act. That bill, which is now pending in the PA Senate, would ban abortions for the sole reason of a Down syndrome diagnosis.
The father-daughter team have an inspiring message: “Embrace, Don’t Erase, Down Syndrome.” They are working to eliminate discrimination and hatred waged against people with Down syndrome—especially when that genocidal discrimination takes the form of abortion.
Kurt and Chloe joined with a prominent pro-life campaigner from Ireland, Michael O’Dowd, in signing a global Declaration for the Eradication of the Genocide of Persons with Down Syndrome. The group signed the historic document on St. Patrick’s Day this year at the headquarters of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.
The Kondrich family was also recognized by the Federation for their outstanding life-saving work when they were given the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Leadership Award.
