Have you heard about what some parents did to their mentally retarded daughter? She will never progress mentally beyond a three month old infant. To ensure quality of care, they elected to have surgery performed that would stunt her growth.Pillow Angel Ethics, Part 2
CNN received some emails regarding the news:Controversial care: Your e-mails
This seems like a horrific thing to do. But I am not her parents so I don't know their personal Hell of having a kid this far disabled. However, I have noticed one thing that everyone does regarding this surgery: point the finger at the parents. Not one, no not one person, has pointed the finger at THE DOCTOR THAT SUGGESTED IT!
All those that are ethically opposed have completely missed the point that a medical expert had to make this suggestion. Where was the ethical review on this doctor's idea?
