The Ashley Treatment
I am a member of Parent Center, and as such, am subject to weekly emails updating me with information about their website.
One of the emails contained the following paragraph:
Due to a disability she's had from birth, 9-year-old Ashley lives permanently in an infant-like state, unable to hold her head up, roll over, or talk. Her parents and doctors have stunted her growth with hormones so she'd be easier to lift, removed her uterus so she won't have periods, and removed her breast buds so she won't suffer the future discomfort of large breasts. Activists are calling these measures unethical. What do you think?
There was a link to the following page: Burning Question
Upon further reading, I found a link to the blog that belongs to Ashley's parents.
I support their decision. But I'm curious... what do YOU think?
