Autism NOW Webinar: The Use of Medical Procedures that Violate Civil Rights
What Is This World Coming To?: The Use of Medical Procedures that Violate Civil Rights
The registration for this webinar is closed, and it is now only available on-demand.
In April, Dr. Phil did a show called Deadly Consequences: Mercy or Murder. It presented the idea that parents should be able to euthanize their children who have intellectual disabilities.
In May, a report documented cases where basics like food, water and medication were denied to people with disabilities who had minor illnesses. This report, Devaluing People with Disabilities: Medical Procedures that Violate Civil Rights, is written by National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) and Disability Rights Washington. It looks at instances where parents have used procedures to prevent puberty in their children with disabilities.
