New Gerber baby has Down syndrome

From Leah Barkoukis at Townhall:

Warren, who’s from Dalton, Georgia, won the distinction from more than 140,000 photos that were submitted from parents across the country. His mother, Cortney Warren, submitted a photo of him wearing a green shirt, polka dot tie, and with a huge grin on his face. That smile was what caught the company’s eye.

“Every year, we choose the baby who best exemplifies Gerber’s long-standing heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby,” said Bill Partyka, chief executive and president of Gerber. “This year, Lucas is the perfect fit.”

In a world where far too many people and countries (like Iceland) don’t believe in the value of every human life, Gerber’s decision should be celebrated. More.

Reality check: Yet Iceland, where Robert Spencer was poisoned, boasts of getting rid of everyone with Down syndrome. The world is certainly bifurcating and most of us know which side we should personally be on.
