What a beautiful statement:

Lucas Warren, an adorable baby with Down syndrome, has been selected as the newest Gerber Spokesbaby. The announcement came this morning on the TODAY Show and, according to the NBC show, “The 1-year-old from Dalton, Georgia, is the first child with Down syndrome to be named a Gerber baby since the contest’s start more than ninety years ago.”

At a time when a shocking number of children with Down syndrome are being aborted, and when at least one country believes it has “eradicated” the condition because of so many abortions, this gesture by Gerber is to be celebrated and praised.  Every life has worth, and every baby deserves a chance to be loved.

Kudos, Gerber!
