Many thanks for the link!

2007-10-18T23:58:00.000-04:00

The thing that kills me... OK, all of it makes me nauseous and want to cry. But there's such a simple test for this: substitute another word for disability - say, black and if the resulting sentence makes you horrified, IT'S NOT ETHICAL!

And the media's clear bias - like the article in the Times (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/health/article2604771.ece) that makes sure to

Thanks for the list. It has been heartening to read these posts, since the mainstream media articles have been mostly awful.

I have just blogged on this too. Here are a few other links;

A similar case is happening in New Zealand as we speak, where they are trying to have an intellectually impaired girl sterilized so she won't get pregnant again.. Link to my blog post about it

I had a really fascinating conversation with my partner about this, and tried (and failed) to reproduce some of it on Quench:

(A note about my scenarios - Quench generally discusses gender/sexuality issues, and many of our contributors and readers are trans. It struck me as odd that you can only get

"These days, it seems like some are medically and chemically reproducing the institutions inside our kids: locking them away from their selves, their choices, their future. We should be moving forward, not backward."

This is so true and so scary to me. With adults with psychiatric disabilities, some parents are trying to force "hospitals without walls": outpatient committment with PACT

Penny,
Add my voice to the cries in this wilderness we find ourselves in.

And, thank you for keeping the list among all the other things you do for our online disability community.

2007-10-11T14:33:00.000-04:00

Thanks for putting this list together! It makes me a little happier that all these voices are out there. I've added my own rather small but no less passionate one, in the spirit of solidarity. It's startling, appalling, and horrifying that more people don't 'know better' and think it's okay or justified to engage in this kind of institutionalized violence against a young woman.

2007-10-11T11:39:00.000-04:00

Well done for collecting these Penny.

I really don't think this will happen, you know? I really hope not, but I'm quite optimistic that this won't be allowed to happen. But I did post something about the press coverage in any case; here.

Thanks, Penny, for keeping us all up to speed.

I recently finished watching Where's Molly? - a documentary about a man searching for his sister. She was institutionalized by her parents here in Oregon in the late 50s-early 60s. These days, it seems like some are medically and chemically reproducing the institutions inside our kids: locking them away from their selves, their

2007-10-10T19:16:00.000-04:00

Hi Daisy--yes, they really did refer to a child as "the turnip" and "a doorstop." The phrase "let the vegetable die" was also thrown around, which was especially frightening because NOBODY in that case was talking about euthanasia or life support... All anonymous, of course.

Kay, yes, it's true, the comments of last January still hold a lot of pain. That's why I'm keeping this link

2007-10-10T19:00:00.000-04:00

Those anonymous comments from last January don't lose their punch, do they?

It's been quite a year. I'm glad you're keeping the list of links. It helps too, to see that list grow.

After the last round on this topic, when we had lovely comments comparing people like my son to doorstops and turnips (thanks so much, CNN, for sending the anonymous hate this way), I'm just not going to respond to anonymous or ugly comments.

Good god, did they really say these things?

Sometimes, I don't even realize how naive I am...

2007-10-10T12:08:00.000-04:00

It's sterilization! It's just another way for this kid not to get to experience life to it's fullest. And that is the gift - being alive. The parents are projecting their own abberations on their daughter. It's so awful that Doctors think this is ok. That the argument is out there that a hystorectomy of a healthy uterus is more humane than having a period is insidious. Humane - like neutering a

This pervasive inability and unwillingness to see and embrace the humanity of others is disabling our society.

2007-10-10T01:19:00.000-04:00

The parents of the 15-year old English girl with cerebral palsy feel that their daughter’s life is already too “undignified” because she needs personal care, and that she might have painful menstrual periods or would be frightened or confused by her “inconvenient” monthly menses. They also fear that she would be more vulnerable to sexual molestation if she is fertile.

People are

We do know better and I am very thankful for blogs like this one and the ones that you list that are out there saying that this isn't okay.
