‘Let’s be America, not Iceland’: Watch Down syndrome advocate’s powerful Capitol Hill testimony (VIDEO)


Frank Stephens, an advocate for people with Down syndrome, delivered a powerful testimony on Capitol Hill this week about life with the condition.

Stephens, a Quincy Jones Advocate at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, told the House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Committee on Appropriations on Wednesday that “I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living.”

“Sadly, across the world, a notion is being sold that maybe we don’t need research concerning Down syndrome. Some people say prenatal screens will identify Down syndrome in the womb, and those pregnacies will just be terminated.”
