U.S. Senators James Lankford and Jim Inhofe from Oklahoma introduced the Down Syndrome Discrimination by Abortion Prohibition Act, which would make it illegal to abort a child because they are diagnosed with Down syndrome.

In a press release, Inhofe wrote, “Every life has value and that extends to the unborn. To take away the precious life of an unborn baby is murder, but to deny a child the chance at life because of his or her chromosome count is a heinous effort to eliminate a vibrant community through abortion.”

In a separate statement, Lankford said, “If you’ve ever met someone or have a family member with Down syndrome, you know they are joyous, wonderful people who deserve as much out of life as any other person.
