Interview about Dr. Jerome Lejeune

Here is an interview by Peter Jesserer Smith in The National Catholic Register¬†with Aude Dugast, who is working for the canonization (declaration of sainthood) in the Catholic Church of Dr. Jerome Lejeune, who discovered the genetic cause of Down’s Syndrom and who was an advisor for University Faculty for Life until his death in 1994. Lejeune’s choice to defend the unborn Down’s Syndrome babies against abortion cost him his career as the preeminent genetic biologist.
