Sharing from our friends at the National Down Syndrome Society. We believe that no child should be discriminated against in their fight for life and are proud supporters of this act:
Great news from our friends at The National Down Syndrome Society! On Thursday, December 2, Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire introduced the Charlotte Woodward Organ Transplant Discrimination Prevention Act in the Senate! This is a huge step forward in advancing health equity for people with disabilities, who deserve life-saving organ transplants as much as anyone else. Thank you, Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Hassan, for protecting this human right. We need everyone’s help to advocate for the passage of this bill!
