Isn’t it ironic that now, when we have so many medical, social, and therapeutic assists for those who need them, more and more people who have any reason to believe they will birth a child who might have special needs of any kind choose to terminate that life in utero? We also hear of possible future drugs which may someday cure Downs Syndrome or at least block the effects of the extra chromosome. This begs the questions: What makes a person a person? What are acceptable treatments, especially when those treatments change the very personality of that person? What does the Bible say concerning medical science breakthroughs? Join Pastor Dave Schultz as he interviews Rev. Scott Heitshusen of St. Mark Lutheran, Houston. May we have the wisdom of Solomon as we broach these issues!
