We are excited to announce the release of The Handbook on the Human Embryo, now available for free download in the United States!
Download Human Embryo Handbook
Sadly, people with genetic disorders, and Down syndrome in particular, are often aborted simply because of their disability. Many people think that embryos are simply a “blob of cells” and not a distinct human life; or they believe that the value of human life is tied to an individual’s capabilities or stage of development.
They couldn’t be more wrong.
But if you want to have meaningful discussions with others about human life, you need to be armed with the facts. You need to be able to answer questions like:
When does life begin? What is an embryo? Why does it matter?
To best care and advocate for others, you must first understand the inherent value of life. And there’s no better time than Down Syndrome Awareness Month to educate yourself and others about how to best care and advocate for people with Down syndrome – including the unborn.
The recent Texas pro-life heartbeat law has generated many conversations about these very issues. It is vital not only for people to have access to this handbook, but for the medical community to utilize it, so that doctors who truly understand the human embryo can better educate their patients.
At the Jerome Lejeune Medical Center in Denver, CO, our medical professionals do just that. With their vast knowledge of the specific needs of individuals with Down syndrome and the different conditions that affect them, they are able to provide the highest quality of care – ensuring that every patient lives their best life.
As you download your copy of The Handbook on the Human Embryo, please consider making a donation today. Your gift will help us expand our medical center’s pilot program and provide much-needed care for children within the Down syndrome community during this critical time.
