Deaf demand right to designer deaf children

by Jennifer Lahl, CBC President on December 24, 2007

Well Lord have mercy. Joining the list of children we want and children we don’t want is the on going battle for the ‘right’ to create deaf children. Of course this has already happened more than once in the U.S. but now the U.K. is duking it out over this issue.

Check this out:

“Jackie Ballard, a former Liberal Democrat MP, says that although the vast majority of deaf parents would want a child who has normal hearing, a small minority of couples would prefer to create a child who is effectively disabled, to fit in better with the family lifestyle.”

To fit in better with the family lifestyle!? Where would that end?
