Today is World Down Syndrome Day. During normal conception; the mother and father each contribute twenty-three chromosomes—usually resulting in a child with forty-six chromosomes. With Down syndrome, the baby gets an extra chromosome, which gives him or her forty-seven chromosomes. So they picked March twenty-first because the baby gets three of chromosome number twenty-one. Sadly about sixty-seven percent of babies, when diagnosed with Down syndrome in the womb, are aborted. If more people understood the blessings of these individuals, nobody would abort them.
