Frank Stephens, a Special Olympian and advocate, shared his experience as a man living with Down syndrome in a testimony to Congress. His quote, “I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living,” went viral. Watch his Congressional testimony here.

Sally Phillips, a British actress and comedian, is a mother who has a child with Down syndrome. In a BBC documentary, “A World without Down Syndrome?” she investigates the exceptionally high abortion rate for Down syndrome in the U.K. and the ethical implications of a new national prenatal screening policy. You can watch her documentary here.

Note: Ms. Phillips supports legalized abortion. Her main interest is changing how the information about Down syndrome is presented to families who receive pre- and postnatal diagnoses.

Support local families with children with Down syndrome through these organizations:
