CNN and the “Ashley Treatment”

This is a recent article on CNN.com (aka, as a Laura Ingraham caller put it, the “Crescent News Network”). This is the best quote:

“Don’t get me wrong — caring for a 5 feet something, 110-plus pound adult with physical disabilities is no walk in the park,” blogs another mom. “I’ve got the trashed lumbar discs to prove that. But I am truly just sick to my stomach to imagine that it’s acceptable medical practice in any case to surgically stunt a child’s growth…. Using their logic, why not just perform quadruple amputations? I mean, really, she’s not going to use her arms and legs.”
