See the Person Behind the Extra Chromosome


See the Person Behind the Extra Chromosome

Bradley Mattes   |   March 10, 2020

Heidi Crowter’s comments were heartbreaking.  Currently, law in the United Kingdom allows aborting babies with Down syndrome throughout pregnancy.  Heidi, who has the condition, said the law makes her feel “unloved and unwanted,” and that it’s “deeply offensive.”  Heidi added her life was just as valuable as anyone else’s.  She’s engaged to a young man named James and they’re planning a wedding later this year.  A British abortion advocate actually responded to the debate saying there’s no contradiction between defending the rights of people with disabilities while aborting others!  Heidi has some advice for parents facing a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.  “Don’t be scared.  See that there’s a person behind [the extra] chromosome.” And we wish Heidi and James a very happy wedding and life together.
