Life Issues Institute is producing a radio special for release around Sanctity of Life Sunday 2020 titled, Every Life Matters: The Truth about Down syndrome. People with Down syndrome are too often considered expendable. In certain countries, government policy is to abort all babies with the genetic markers. In the process, the world is robbed of people who most joyfully and kindly shine brightest among us. In this special, Life Issues’ President Brad Mattes interviews Shauna Amicka, whose daughter, Sarah, is the joy of her life. He also speaks with Katie Shaw, who has the condition, but has successfully lobbied to pass legislation protecting these lives. That and much more will be covered in this moving and informative special.

This year Life Issues Institute is championing that every life matters by proclaiming the truth about Down syndrome.
