Charlotte Woodward, like many individuals with Down syndrome, dealt with a serious heart condition. Charlotte got a needed heart transplant, but her situation was rare. According to research, a vast majority of transplant centers consider intellectual or developmental disabilities in getting a transplant or even being put on a list. Only 15 states have passed legislation making such discrimination illegal, which has necessitated families moving to one of these states to get medical treatment. Over 2/3s of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. If they survive the womb, many then face obstacles getting critical medical care. Now, a bipartisan effort in Washington, DC is underway to pass federal legislation protecting these individuals.
