Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:
Happy Good Friday! As Christians everywhere today remember Jesus’ words that “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” we also recognize the intrinsic value and dignity of all innocent human life — life so precious that God’s only Son offered Himself up to redeem us. As Bristol noted in her recent blog post (linked below), we just recognized World Down Syndrome Day, and days like that remind me of the great blessing God has given our family in our little boy Trig, who has taught me in a special way how precious all innocent life is.
Happy Easter weekend!

When I found out Mom was pregnant with a baby who would have Down syndrome, I confess. I was scared. I didn’t know what it would mean for his life or for ours. Well, recently World Down Syndrome Day was celebrated, and I saw this sweet post by Amy Julia Becker, who lists five things she wishes she had known when she learned that her daughter was born with Down syndrome.
