Petition to Pass the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act

8-16-17_Down_Syndrome.jpg

I sign this petition in support of H.B. 214/S.B. 164, legislation to protect unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome from abortion. Sadly, up to 90 percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. It is time that Ohio opposes this kind of discrimination against our most vulnerable.

One of the main reasons why abortion is so disproportionately high in the case of Down syndrome is because of stigma. Women abort after a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome because of the perceived parenting burden and perceived quality of life of children with Down syndrome. These are reversible factors that depend on our efforts. But abortion is irreversible.

Please support the passage of this legislation and help Ohio become a more supportive and empathetic state that refuses to discriminate against babies diagnosed with Down syndrome.
