Kurt Kondrich: Advocate for Children with Down Syndrome
April 10, 2018
Hosted by Joyce Bender
Joyce welcomes Kurt Kondrich, father of a beautiful daughter, Chloe, who was born with Down syndrome. Kurt became aware of the 90+ percent abortion rate for children diagnosed with Down syndrome before birth. He embarked on a mission to be a loud voice for children like Chloe and make sure people see abilities and what a precious gift these individuals are. He will discuss how he speaks frequently to policymakers, community groups, students, and church leaders about the silent prenatal eugenic movement against children diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome.
