U.S. Premiere: Jerome Lejeune Documentary
The SBA List’s research arm, the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), is co-hosting a free screening of the new documentary film about Jerome Lejeune. The screening is open to the public and takes place next Wednesday in Washington, D.C.
In 1958, Lejeune discovered that Down syndrome was caused by an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. Lejeune was hailed as “The Father of Modern Genetics” for that discovery, which radically changed the course of modern medicine.
Lejeune was awarded by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, and celebrated by the American Society of Human Genetics in 1969, but his fortunes turned when he became an outspoken advocate for the dignity of every human life, and opposed the use of his discovery to prenatally diagnose and abort babies with Down syndrome. Lejeune was a devout Catholic, whose cause for sainthood is moving forward at the Vatican.
CLI has worked with the Lejeune Foundation USA to advocate for individuals with Down Syndrome and their families.
To the Least of My Brothers and Sisters is a new documentary on the life of Jerome Lejeune, made to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his death. We would love to see you at the screening, which is being co-hosted by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, next week.
Here are the details (the event is completely free):

Highlights from the 2015 Campaign for Life Gala
Last week the Susan B. Anthony List hosted our 8th annual Gala and Summit!
SBA List Summit
Senator Rand Paul kicked off the SBA List Summit. Here's an excerpt from his remarks, which you can watch at the video below.
“Now some have said to me, they’ve said, ‘Well, you’re big on all this liberty stuff, why do you want to restrict a woman’s right to choose?’ And I say, “Well, you know what, the government does have some role in our lives. One of the main roles the government has is to restrict you from harming another individual.’ Which gets us back to the original debate, when life beings there is a role for state. So it’s not that I’m against people choosing things, I’m in fact one of the biggest believers in choice and liberty, but you can’t have liberty if you don’t protect where your liberty originates from and that’s your right to life.”
SBA List Gala
Speaking about the differences between the two political parties, Sen. Graham said:
“The voice for the unborn resides in our party almost exclusively. And for that I am sad. To our pro-life Democrats: you should have a very special place in Heaven.”
Mistress of ceremonies Carly Fiorina also brought up the Democratic Party platform of abortion on-demand:
We also heard from SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), the recipient of the Marilyn Musgrave Defender of Life Award.
And RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, recipient of our Distinguished Leader Award.Read More
