Incorruptible -- Why the devil uses abortion to eliminate Down syndrome

In the fictional novel The Clowns of God by Morris West, Jesus comes back to earth, and some people think it's Him while some don't. At one point, Jesus is at a school for children with Down syndrome, and He is holding a little girl. Jesus says:

"I know what you are thinking. You need a sign. What better one could I give but to make this little one whole and new? I could do it, but I will not. I am the Lord and not a conjurer. I gave this mite a gift I denied to all of you — eternal innocence. To you she looks imperfect — but to me she is flawless, like the bud that dies unopened or the fledgling that falls from the nest to be devoured by ants. She will never offend me, as all of you have done. She will never pervert or destroy the work of my Father's hands. She is necessary to you. She will evoke the kindness that will keep you human. Her infirmity will prompt you to gratitude for your own good fortune... More! She will remind you every day that I am who I am, that my ways are not yours, and that the smallest dust mite whirled in the darkest spaces does not fall out of my hand... I have chosen you. You have not chosen me. This little one is my sign to you. Treasure her!"

Less than a week before my beautiful 7-year-old daughter Chloe — who has Down syndrome — was born into this world, my wife had an ultrasound performed by the head of radiology at a renowned hospital. We had no prenatal testing and knew we were having a daughter. The head of radiology told us after the ultrasound that our baby girl was small but she was "perfect." A few days later, Chloe arrived in this world, and the past 7 years have taught me that no truer words were spoken than those by the radiologist.

The light, purity, innocence, and unconditional love that Chloe spreads each day are things we should all be striving to embed in our lives as we journey through this brief visit on earth (James 4:14: "What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes"). The word that best describes Chloe for me is "incorruptible," and she is a priceless treasure.

After spending years on the streets as a Police Officer and witnessing how the devil quickly invades and corrupts people, it is priceless to be in the presence of a soul that cannot be compromised. This must make the devil absolutely consumed with rage, and I believe that is why he is using the ungodly instrument of abortion to eliminate these precious individuals before they arrive in the world to spread unimpeded light and love. Nothing must make the devil madder than an incorruptible soul especially when so many in the world have willingly followed his path of lies and deception (Matthew 7:13-14: "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it").

Currently 90%+ children diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome are terminated before they can unleash their light upon this broken, corrupt world, and when we leave this earth and stand in judgment, we will have wished we had the shining, bright, perfect armor they possess. Let us pray that our culture of death wakes up to this prenatal massacre of God's most pure, innocent, and incorruptible persons, and our lost, darkening world desperately needs the bright light they bring!
