George Will: Jon Will’s gift

A marvelous tribute to Jon Will by his father. It is well worth reading. Please do.

Jon is the oldest son of columnist George Will & he has down syndrome. This year Jon turned 40. It is a great story. Which makes this simple quote all that much more tragic:

So today science enables what the ethos ratifies, the choice of killing children with Down syndrome before birth. That is what happens to 90 percent of those whose parents have prenatal testing.
