Fighting the New Eugenics: Expert Leads Way on Down Syndrome
As new prenatal testing allows parents to “select” desirable physical attributes for their children by aborting those with the wrong attributes, we are now faced with the ultimate commoditization of childbearing. The Down Syndrome community has dealt with this issue for years, as prenatal testing for Down has resulted in 90% of Down Syndrome children being aborted.
We are excited to have as our fall speaker Dr. Bill Mobley, a premiere neurologist and the acknowledged expert on the treatment of Down Syndrome. He will talk about exciting new possibilities for treatment, as well as the contribution Down Syndrome children and adults bring to their communities.
A Rose and a Prayer Education Group presents a Fundraising Breakfast featuring Dr. William Mobley, Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience at UC San Diego and Executive Director of the university’s Down Syndrome Center for Research and Treatment.
His research on the neurobiology of Down syndrome has brought new insights into the disease, including possible treatments. He has done pioneering work on the neurobiology of Alzheimer’s disease using a mouse model of Down syndrome.
In 2011, Dr. Mobley was honored with the International Sisley-Jerome Lejeune Prize in Paris for his contributions to the field of Down syndrome and genetic intellectual disabilities. This led to his recognition by U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions on the floor of the House of Representatives.

A Christmas Campaign
One of A Rose And A Prayer’s most important ministries is connecting pregnant women to local crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs).
Since beginning our online ad campaign last year through Facebook and other social media, Delaware’s CPCs are reporting 50% increases in visits to their centers.
The general rule is that half of all women who visit a CPC website will schedule an appointment. Of those that do visit, overwhelming majorities choose life.
In 2010, A Rose And A Prayer directed an astonishing 2,000 women to CPC sites, generating as many as 1,000 visits to area-CPCs.
This is by far the most cost-effective way to save lives in Delaware.
This Christmas, we are blessed to have a generous donor agree to match funds up to $12,000 for a renewed online ad campaign to connect even more women to the help they desperately need.
So many women who abort want to choose life, and we’re working to make sure they know help exists for them.
Your donation of $50, $100, $500, or even $1,000 will help us connect pregnant women to Delaware’s many excellent CPCs. Every dollar you donate, in addition to being tax-deductible, will be matched.
It costs only $5 for us to set up the apparatus to reach a single pregnant woman online. Your donation could be the difference that helps a local woman make a life-affirming choice.
A Rose And A Prayer’s compassionate, pragmatic mission to support pregnant women and their children is making a difference in Delaware!
Little Delaware suffers from the highest per capita abortion rate in the nation, beating out even New York, New Jersey, and California. With your help, we are working tirelessly to reduce those numbers from every angle: through outreach to pregnant women, public education of our children, communities, and elected officials; outreach to Delaware’s African-American community, and political advocacy in our state government.
