It is a human right issue to deny people with Down Syndrome fair medical practices!

I'm shocked this is an issue at all in America. Am I to understand that people with Down Syndrome do not have the same rights as everyone else then?

Couldn't help it but had to put in the following comment:
"Goodness me - I didn't know that such NAZI thinking exists and if officially sanctioned in the USofA! How despicable and utterly disturbing to insinuate that not all lives are equally valuable and precious. Signed in disbelief and disgust!"

Is that the whole petition? More information would be helpful. Is it really a practice to deny organs to people with Down's syndrome?if so, where? That short of a petition seems like someone making something up. I will have to investigate this one further.

I gladly signed. People with Down Syndrome can lead full and happy lives. Why should they be denied the chance to get an organ transplant? Dick Cheney got a heart transplant and he was old and not in good shape I was surprised when the heart they gave him didn't reject him!.

Signed, although I hope it's not true that they categorically deny organs to people with Down Syndrome. That sounds completely unethical. Ty Barb.
