People With Down Syndrome Are Applying To Be On The Endangered List

by Family, Pro-Life, Social Justice

The Canadian Down Syndrome Society has created this powerful video to raise awareness and they need your help in making it go viral. “By the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s own criteria, the Down syndrome community qualifies as endangered in many parts of the world.
