60. Downright Discrimination - Changing The Laws To Confirm That Every Life Is Equal
Jun 17th, 2021 by If We Knew Then - The Down Syndrome Podcast
Today we interview Máire, Heidi and Liz about their ‘Downright Discrimination’ legal campaign which fights to change the law of the land and create equality for people with disabilities. Presently, in the U.K., it is illegal to abort a fetus after 24 weeks unless it has Down's syndrome. A baby with Down syndrome can be aborted up to birth. We examine the effect this inequality has on our community by creating separation and discrimination that follows us through life. We also talk about ways we can support the cause of changing the laws.
