    Improving Joyful Lives: Society’s Response to Difference and Disability

    • Description: "A new paper authored by Mark Bradford, president of the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation USA and released by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, examines societal response to individuals diagnosed with Down syndrome (Trisomy 21) and makes policy recommendations to further improve their lives. "Ninety nine percent of individuals diagnosed with Down syndrome report being happy with their lives. Studies also show that their joy has a ripple effect in their families and communities. The impact of these unique men and women has recently been spotlighted in the media – everywhere from the King’s ice rink in Los Angeles to the Reds’ on-deck circle in Cincinnati,” said Chuck Donovan, president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute. “Tragically, the majority of babies diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome are aborted. Mark Bradford and the Lejeune Foundation, along with other disability advocates, ardently believe that this does not have to be. With Down syndrome, as with any other difference or disability, we must respond with knowledge, understanding and compassion.”
    • Segment Guests:
      • Chuck Donovan
        President, Charlotte Lozier Institute

        Chuck served as Legislative Director of the National Right to Life Committee more than three decades ago, worked as a writer for President Reagan, helped to lead the Family Research Council for nearly two decades and most recently has been Senior Research Fellow in Religion and Civil Society at The Heritage Foundation.
