‘I am a man with Down’s syndrome and my life is worth living’
A man with Down’s syndrome told US politicians that his life is “worth living” as he hit out at those who are trying to eradicate Down’s babies in the womb.

Frank Stephens told a congressional committee that he shouldn’t have to justify his existence, asking “Is there really no place for us in the world?”

A video of his speech has gone viral and amassed millions of views on social media.

The point James is making has to do with the socioeconomic status of the visitors; their clothing merely gives us a clue. Many homeless people visit our church, and needless to say we don't expect them to wear a tailored suit or an expensive dress. On the other hand, if they show up in a bikini or a speedo they are going to be asked to come back in more appropriate attire. But that would apply whether the visitors showed up riding a bike or driving a Lamborghini. I know for a fact that the homeless visitors receive the same welcome as the affluent ones.

Democrat Legislator: “Women Have Every Right” to Abort Babies Just Because They Have Down Syndrome

It’s difficult for abortion activists to argue against legislation that would protect unborn babies from discrimination because of their sex or abilities, but they certainly are trying in Ohio.

Earlier this week, Ohio state House lawmakers passed a bill to prohibit abortions on unborn babies with Down syndrome. Babies with the genetic disorder are some of the most targeted for abortion, with abortion rates at nearly 100 percent in Iceland and as high as 90 percent in the United States.

But abortion activists with NARAL and other radical pro-abortion groups think a woman should be able to abort an unborn baby for any reason, including discrimination

this week, pro-abortion Ohio state Rep. Brigid Kelly told Bustle that she believes women should be able to decide to have an abortion for any reason without government interference.

Kelly said. “I think that women have every right to make the medical decisions that are appropriate for themselves and for their families.”

Kelly's amendment would have nullified the bill by making it so that no women has to explain her reasons for the abortion

I certainly don't remember 'Baby Jessica' but do remember some Chilean miners who were rescued. It would be interesting to see how they are doing today.
A previous post mentioned evolution's survival of the fittest idea, and it reminded me that many countries count baby deaths differently. In some places, if the baby dies after a few days of birth, they are not counted in the official death statistics. This matters when people compare the US with other countries in 'infant mortality rates.'
And, isn't there a passage in the letter of James in the New Testament that admonishes people to not distinguish people based on their dress?

Focus on each individual-
Millions of Americans remember when Texas 18-month-old Jessica McClure was rescued from a backyard well after being trapped for nearly 60 hours — but the center of attention herself has no recollection of the harrowing event.

Now 30, Jessica McClure Morales — who still answers to “Baby Jessica” from friends and strangers in her hometown of Midland, Texas — understands why so many people across the country became invested in her survival in October of 1987.

“I had God on my side that day,” Jessica says in the upcoming issue of PEOPLE, “My life is a miracle.”

Television viewers watched as hundreds of paramedics, rescuers, drilling experts and contractors feverishly worked to save the baby’s life. Meanwhile, they were reassured when they heard Jessica singing “Winnie the Pooh” from deep in the well. As long as she was singing, she was still alive

“I think it’s amazing that people would come together like that to donate money to a child that was not theirs,” she says of the generosity of strangers. “I appreciate everything they did.”

Her own children are old enough now to understand what happened to her and have Googled scenes of the amazing rescue. Jessica says she hopes they learn from her rescue “to always be humble.

There is at least one glaring problem with "survival of the fittest" when it comes to abortion: if the babies don't survive, how can it be ascertained which are the fittest? Besides, how should we determine who is fit to judge, and by what criteria they should judge, which babies are "fit"?

Never mind about shirts unbuttoned or buttoned, with or without ties. Let us not get distracted with such things. Babies in the womb are being killed in their millions, because they are "not perfect".

Yet young men like this man are able to live productive lives, and even those who are too badly affected by their disabilities to work still are human beings who, though physically and / or mentally disabled in various ways, are made in the image of God.

However, even babies with very minor disabilities, or full able bodied babies who are "inconvenient", "the wrong sex", or in the case of some of these eugenicist type characters that commit abortions, "the wrong ethnic or sociological economic group", (even if they deny it vehemently), are put to death in the womb on the slightest excuse.

Darwinism and evolution "survival of the fittest" is coming to its full conclusion, as is this modern version of the ancient Canaanite religion.

Why would any man want to moo with his top button buttoned? If I were going to moo, I would unbutton my top button--and maybe even untie my shoes.

Why don't you just wear overalls to church? They are both comfortable and casual, and have no pesky top buttons to deal with. You can just tie your tie around one of the galluses. Problem solved.

Good for him to testify, though with the NYC attack, it will not be much noticed.
It is also an 'inconvenient truth' for many people today who want to have perfect children, and very few of them (no more than 2).
The media emphasizes how expensive it is to raise a child, pay for his college, etc. In the US, parents are being saddled with their children's college loans ("Parent Plus Loans"), so they are not going to be able to retire. And I thought the point of going to college was to make more money, but some kids think it's just to have fun, the well-paying job will come on its own time.
As a previous poster noted, we have been here before. But who remembers the history?
I remember a comic French film about this subject, "Mon Oncle" (My Uncle) that showed the contrast between the old-fashioned uncle and the New Modern Family with an-all modern house with all-modern appliances. Though made in the 1950s, we are moving faster and faster to that modern house.
Oh, on the tie and shirt...there is a conspiracy to make dress shirts with collars that are too small, so the body may fit, but the collar does not.

How about a bolo tie, John. When you make it big as a country and western singer, will you wear a bolo tie with the top button buttoned? (just curious)

Please answer the question. Why do men think it is necessary to wear a tie with top button on the dress shirt buttoned instead of unbuttoned? There is no way that I will ever wear a tie with the top button on the dress shirt buttoned. I want to be comfortable when wearing a shirt and tie.
