On the polar express. I love this little guy more then words can express. He makes me so excited to have a little boy in a couple months.
79% of parents report their outlook on life is more positive because of their child with Down syndrome.
99% of adults with Down syndrome report they are happy with their lives, 97% like who they are, and 96% like how they look.
And yet, 9 out of 10 babies who are diagnosed with a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis are terminated. That’s 90%.
“So once again the culture of death distorts the truth by suggesting that parents are doing the right thing by killing their Down Syndrome child. The culture of death says, “Better dead than have Downs.” But 99% of adults with Down Syndrome report they are happy with their lives. I doubt you would find anything close to that percentage in the “healthy” adult population. And yet it is these very happy adults that are being targeted for destruction in the womb.” ~ Rebecca Taylor, LifeNews
Also, the Downs test is incredibly inaccurate. I personally know 3 people whose parents were told they would have Downs and should be aborted. Thankfully all 3 sets of parents chose life, and my boyfriend, roommate, and classmate are alive and healthy. Also, none of them ended up having Downs.
Down’s syndrome is no reason to kill a child. The chance of a child having Down’s syndrome isn’t one either. There are loving families out there who specifically want to adopt kids with Down’s syndrome and other special needs.
Day :1 thirty selfies for Wes.
I get to see my mom today for the first time in like 2 weeks I am so excited. We are going to a Polar Express thing where you ride on a train. Which I think sounds way fun and I know my little brother will love it. Seeing his face is going to be the best part. I also get to go see my pregnant friend before. I haven’t seen her in like 8 months so it should be fun. She is 6 days further along then me.
Let me tell you a fucking thing about costume design. That’s some in depth, difficult shit to learn. And the fact that this goddess can ramble this shit off the cuff means she knows her shit. ELLE WOODS IS A GODAMNED GENIUS AND IT’s NOT A STRETCH TO BELIEVE SHE GOT INTO HARVARD LAW MMMK?
FUCK YEAH ELLE WOODS OR DIE
this movie is literally about an attractive woman who loves to party having to prove over and over again that she’s also intelligent and hard-working to those who judge her based on her looks (who also empowers and fights for other women, and fosters unlikely friendships instead of engaging in girl hate) and if you don’t think that’s some great feminist shit then I don’t know what your problem is
I hate when people assume that women can only be one of three things; pretty, smart, or strong. Even though there are a hell of a lot of women proving that they can rock all three. We’re not either/or, so people should stop treating us as such.
I’m gonna start by saying that anyone who makes pregnancy more difficult on a woman than it already is is a huge asshole for lack of a better term. Women go through SO much during pregnancy and it’s something you can’t really comprehend unless you are THAT woman. Pregnant women alone can only…
it makes me so uncomfortable when people swear at their parents like i would get straight up beaten if i told my mom to shut the fuck up
I just think it’s so disrespectful. I would never swear at my parents or tell them to shut up. Those are the people who have always been there for you and given up a lot to take care or you.
Sophia Bush has declared war on Urban Outfitters after they marketted a t-shirt with the words ‘Eat Less’ on the front.
The One Tree Hill actress, in an entry on her personal blog, called for them to issue an apology and make a donation to a charity for eating disorders, and said, “It’s like handing a suicidal person a loaded gun. You should know better.”
Sophia wrote, “To promote starvation? To promote anorexia, which leads to heart disease, bone density loss, and a slew of other health problems, not least of all psychological issues that NEVER go away? Shame on you. I will no longer be shopping at your stores. And I will encourage the tens of thousands of female supporters I have to do the same.”source.deactivated20110)
