Special Needs Families & Supporters Rally Against "R-Word"

On Wednesday, the R-Word project (coordinated by Best Buddies and the Special Olympics) ran a social media campaign called "Spread the word to end the word." The goal of the project is to make use of the disparaging word "retarded" unacceptable.

The pro-life movement, of course, overlaps significantly with the disability rights movement. SPL failed to learn about and promote the R-Word's social media campaign in advance (our bad), so to make up for it, we've gathered a few of our favorite tweets from the campaign.
