Jerome Lejeune (1926–1994) was a geneticist in France who was strongly pro-life. Lejeune was a leader in the research of genetic disabilities, starting with his first major discovery in July 1958–that extra chromosomes in a person's genome was linked to mental disability.[1] The Lejeune Foundation, started in 1996, continues his work.[2]

In early 2021, the catholic church gave him the title of "venerable," and was considering beatifying him as a saint.[3][4]
