Hi Jessica,
Thanks for reading :)

Ruth,
I've shared this information with CatholicMatch.com. Granted it's a singles site but someone there may know someone who can use this information. Or, for those who will find their "match" through CM, this information will help them to stand by their convictions to choose life if they're ever in the situation of receiving a prenatal disability diagnosis. Thanks!

I'm really glad to see this - ever since I read the book Defiant Birth, I've been so aware of how much pressure there is for women to abort disabled babies while they are pregnant.

Sr. Edith - Thanks for your comment. That book is an eye opener. The pressure seems to be increasing too.

Edward-Thank you for passing it along to that site. You're right that someone might need it :)
