Meet Chloe Kondrich. She plays Frisbee, loves ice cream and pop music, and knows her way around an iPad better than any adult. That said, she’s been a bit busy lately meeting world leaders, getting legislation passed, and never forgetting to laugh with and hug everyone she meets along the way. Chloe has Down syndrome, the most common genetic disorder that results in mild to moderate developmental delays due to having an extra 21st chromosome.
Recently, she helped lead the fight for kids like her in Pennsylvania by getting “Chloe’s Law” passed which requires support and educational materials to be provided for families after a diagnosis of Down Syndrome. The law was crafted after her Dad, Kurt, found out how often the diagnosis of Down Syndrome is a death sentence for many children in the womb. Parents often are pressured by society and medical professionals to abort their children upon a Down Syndrome diagnosis, with no alternatives given. This makes Chloe and her Mom and Dad very sad.
Children like Chloe deserve to be welcomed into the world, not targeted in the womb and erased. They make our world a brighter place and should be treated with the same dignity as any human child. Chloe is a living example of this, and proof of how much potential lies in the hearts of these little angels – potential to change the world! So, she’s inviting you to help tag along so that together we may “embrace, and not erase” Down Syndrome children worldwide!
Chloe’s Foundation is focused on providing resources, support and assistance to children with Down syndrome and their families. The concentration of Chloe’s Foundation will be helping children with Down Syndrome and their families to have a healthy, happy, productive LIFE where the focus is on the ABILITIES of the individual with Down syndrome in social, educational, and community settings.
Currently high rates of children diagnosed prenatally with Down Syndrome are aborted, up to 90% in the US, 90%+ in Europe and 100% in Iceland.
Chloe’s Foundation will work to restore a culture of LIFE for individuals with Down Syndrome and advocate for policies that will end this eugenic movement.
