Welcome
Utah Down Syndrome Foundation

Does a member of your family have Down syndrome? Has your baby been prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome? Are you the parents of a newborn with Down syndrome? Are you and a family member with Down syndrome moving to Utah? Please contact us for information. We have parent volunteers to help and support you and your family and to answer any questions. 

The UTAH DOWN SYNDROME FOUNDATION brings families together to build a community and help individuals with Down syndrome reach their highest potential. We provide programs and services for parents and families as well as for individuals with the condition. With knowledge and support, you can be your child's best advocate.

Come Let Your Voice Be Heard!

Public opinion needed before the House Committee:
 
Tomorrow, Wednesday
February 6, 2019 at 4PM
 
Room 20, House Building, Utah State Capital (same as last year).
 
 
House Bill 205 is now House Bill 166
 
This bill protects unborn children in Utah from discrimination based on a diagnosis (or belief) that they have Down syndrome.
 
HB 166 HighlightsFamily-with-Ds-Child.jpg
 
1) Defines "Down syndrome."
2) Requires the Department of Health to create a Down syndrome informational support sheet and publish the same information on the department's website.
3) Requires that a pregnant woman be provided certain information before receiving an abortion when a prenatal screening or diagnostic test indicates that the pregnant woman's unborn child has or may have Down syndrome.
4) After expressly permitted by a court of binding authority, prohibits a person from performing, inducing, or attempting to perform or induce an abortion on a pregnant woman who is seeking the abortion solely because an unborn child has or may have Down syndrome.
 5) Requires an abortion pathology report to provide information about whether an aborted child had or may have had Down syndrome.
 6) Requires a physician who performed an abortion to state whether the physician had any knowledge that the pregnant woman sought the abortion solely because the unborn child had or may have had Down syndrome.
 
  • Other states have passed similar bills. Some of these bills are being contested in court due to the abortion piece. Thus, the abortion part of HB 166 will only be triggered if other states successfully litigate their bills. However, the education part of HB 166 is still on the table.
