When Rick and Abbie Smith learned that their son Noah was born with Down syndrome they made a decision to celebrate his life and use his story to show the world that all life has value and worth.

Rick (along with his pastor and friend, Todd Wagner) co-hosts the popular weekly video podcast Real Truth. Real Quick. that answers noahquestions about life, leadership, and culture in five minutes or less.

In honor of World Down Syndrome Day they decided to use their platform to answer some questions related to Down syndrome, abortion, prenatal testing, and The Smith’s commitment to using their online presence to help the world see that all life is valuable.

This past Sunday (when new episodes are released) they answered the question, “Is It Ok To Abort My Child If Prenatal Testing Reveals He May Be Born With Special Needs?” We encourage you to check out the video below:

Today on World Down syndrome they released a special extended edition of Real Truth. Real Quick. that spent more time going into Noah’s story. The video is worth watching and we applaud The Smiths, and Mr. Wagner’s strong stance on the value of human life.

We encourage you to follow Noah’s story, and check out the online community he has built on Facebook. And be sure to download the Real Truth. Real Quick. on iTunes or Android to watch these episodes and all past ones.
