"The black and white / right vs. wrong / ethical vs. unethical line seems so clear for you, but come play at my house for a week....” -- One of the sympathetic commenters to The Ashley Treatment, an article posted by parents of a severely disabled girl in Seattle who opted for surgery and hormone treatment to stop their daughter's growth. Medical ethicists and disability advocates are troubled, but I for one am waiting for the Schiavo tribe to pipe up on this one...yeah, I won't hold my breath.
