    Down Syndrome as a Pro-Life Cause

    Featuring Madame Birthe Lejeune, wife of renowned doctor and Servant of God, Jerome Lejeune
    Opening remarks by Dr. John Bruchalski

    Dr. Lejeune was known for discovering the genetic cause of Down syndrome. He spent the rest of his life defending the value of every life and working on the behalf of those affected by Down syndrome, until his death in 1994. His work as a doctor and ethicist has long served as an inspiration for Divine Mercy Care’s founder Dr. John Bruchalski, who is also the founder and a current physician at Tepeyac OB/GYN, a non-profit medical practice in Fairfax, VA.

    Madame Lejeune will be sharing with us the life story of her husband and their shared work caring for the most vulnerable through research, education, and advocacy.

    Divine Mercy Care is an umbrella healthcare organization dedicated to transforming hearts through healthcare. Part of our mission is to inspire pro-life caregivers and medical professionals through education about pro-life medical issues. We are so grateful to be presenting this lecture free and open to the public to inform the community about Down syndrome, together with
    our partners: Tepeyac OB/GYN and Jerome Lejeune Foundation.
