Don’t Screen Us Out launch open letter to Jeremy Hunt

Jul 14, 2016 | Uncategorized

We have just received the surprising news, to mixed reception, that Jeremy Hunt has been spared his job and will remain Secretary of State for Health.

In response, this afternoon, we have launched an open letter to Jeremy Hunt demanding that his department stop ignoring the concerns of people with Down’s syndrome, their families and the wider community and to start consulting them on proposals that are projected to lead to a profound increase in the number of children with Down’s syndrome screened out by termination.

We need as many people from across the country as possible to sign this open letter so that it has as big an impact as possible. We in particular need people with Down’s syndrome and their families and friends to sign the letter as you are the group that will be most affected by the proposals as they stand. Please sign today and let your friends and family know about it.

Click here to sign the open letter now.
