Simple question

As I mentioned, I am writing a post for a main stream publication on Growth Attenuation, also called the Ashley Treatment. (see here if you are not familiar) I just submitted it, I will keep you informed.

The reasons for the treatment typically start with talk of “quality of life” for the child. Really?

Here is my simple question. Does anyone know of any severely disabled person, or any disabled person, who has the ability to communicate, or gained the ability to communicate later in life, that has said “Damn, I wish when I was young my parents sterilized me, gave me a total mastectomy, took out my appendix for added good measure, and gave me lots of hormones. My life would have been so much better.”?

I’ve told you that the thing that scares me most is the day I meet Pearlsky in heaven and she can talk.

I’m damn glad I ain’t Ashley’s dad.
