Blog, and All the World Blogs with You

The activist group Not Dead Yet recently changed from a static Web site to a blog format, and, after the people at NDY adapted to the process, they opened the blog up to commentary from people interested in the same issues.

As I've been repeatedly reminded, the issue of legalized medical killing has supporters among people with disabilities, but I continue to believe that it remains a core issue as important as the manipulation of the human genome and prenatal genetic screening viewed through the lens of humanistic utilitarianism.

NDY covers stories about the issue every day. Some of the recent posts include ...

  • Miracles, Malpractice, Survivors and Recovery

  • Rush to Judgment Ends Lives of Newly Disabled

  • Calif.: Another Hospital Death, Documented Neglect and Fraud, But No One Did Anything Wrong

  • Do bioethicists actually read the stories they post on blogs?

Another disability activist will be blogging for the next 2 weeks on disability news for the Society of Professional Journalists Diversity Committee.

"About 90 percent of pregnant women who are given a Down syndrome diagnosis have chosen to have an abortion." (Prenatal Test Puts Down Syndrome in Hard Focus from The New York Times, 09 May 2007.)
