Why are children with Down syndrome not considered for Organ transplants?

A child with Down syndrome does not "qualify" for an organ transplant!? So if they are in a car accident or get sick (Which many of them do) They are NOT Given the same chance as a child without Down syndrome! Children with Down syndrome DO NOT QUALIFY FOR ORGANS!Beacuse in the medical community they say their "Quality" of life is not considered EQUAL!? to that of a typical person? seriously who has the right to sayb this about any child? This is written by a 15 year old girl who wants change for all induviduals with Down syndrome!!! You can also chck out her page and see just how wonderful she is!!~
