Senate Passes Brownback's Down Syndrome Bill

From Jean at Catholic Fire:
The Senate approved a measure that requires doctors to give expectant mothers more comprehensive information if they receive a positive test for Down syndrome.

The bill is the product of an unusual partnership between Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, an anti-abortion Republican, and Sen. Edward Kennedy, an abortion-rights advocate from Massachusetts.

About 90% of women who learn they are carrying a fetus with the genetic disorder have an abortion.

Kennedy is a longtime advocate of disabled and children with special needs.

The bill requires doctors to give parents information about caring for children with disabilities and about support services.
Great news!

Wow, great news indeed. Good to see the Senator Ted Kennedy doing some good in the Fall of his life.

God bless both of them.

Um, let's not forget that Ted Kennedy has also dedicated his entire life to creating and protecting the ability of those 90% of parents of Down Syndrome children to kill them.

Where are the howls from the left from all those who excoriated Gov. Palin for delivering her baby?
