Saving Downs is one of three Down syndrome advocacy groups that have filed a legal brief with the U.S. Supreme Court urging them to address inequalities that discriminate against those prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome.

The brief urges that the principle of support to the parents be aligned with the Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act and the American Disabilities Act.
