I do think it’s a good bill, but like so many others will have lots of pro-death baggage tacked on. It’s so sad that we have to continue to compromise with death in order to gain ground in the prolife movement. Reply kalej July 19, 2007 - 12:54 pm I don’t quite understand the bill. Is it just requiring someone to make sure the parents have information and resources? I didn’t take Kennedy’s “make an informed choice” as a pro-life statement, so I wonder how it is we should rejoice? Reply cjmr July 19, 2007 - 1:05 pm Considering that right now what the pregnant mother gets is usually primarily the thoughts and opinions of the OB/GYN practice whose care she is under –which may be extremely biased toward ‘perfect’ children, and which may not reflect recent advances in caring for children with the particular condition–this is a major step forward. Many women have been ‘persuaded’ (coerced may be a better term) to abort their less-than-perfect child by horror stories of how hard it will be to care for them–I think that requiring patients be given information about groups that support parents who are dealing with ‘condition X’ on a daily basis will make it much more likely that the woman will choose to love (and deliver) the child she’s carrying. Reply carlos July 19, 2007 - 4:18 pm I’m also surprised. Still, a broken clock is correct twice a day. Maybe Kennedy will sponsor good legislation once more this year. Reply John Hetman July 20, 2007 - 7:46 pm The Kennedy family has always had a deep interest in what was once termed mental retardation. There was (and maybe still is) a center neamed after one of them in the south Chicago suburbs. I believe that one of Ted’s sisters was a special needs child–perhaps with something similar to Downs. I was once at a fund-raising dinner for a Jewish organization that served special needs children and Eunice Shriver was the guest on honor, back in 1996. The local parish has several adult Downs altar servers–the finest servers that there are! Reply Dolores A July 21, 2007 - 3:31 pm Yes John, his sister Rosemary had something wrong with her brain. Reply Leticia July 23, 2007 - 2:00 pm Rosemary was retarded, and their father, Joe Kennedy, who was the Ambassador to Great Britain at the time, sent her for a lobotomy while her mother was in France. Her outbursts were embarrassing him. I think all the Kennedy family’s activism with the mentally challenged since then (Maria Shriver started “Best Buddies” a mentoring organization) is actually in tribute to Rosemary, so you don’t need to look for hidden agendas in the bill, believe it or not. I was told by American Life League that Teddy Kennedy was on the right side of the Terry Schiavo debate as well. Keep praying for him, I’m sure Rosemary is!
