Surgery And Ethics And More

magritte-forbidden.jpg

I’ve complained here and elsewhere about the surgical mutilation of disabled minors. I’ve also shared my preoccupation with conjoined twins. Now, I urge you to take a look at a thought-provoking blog where these subjects are addressed with remarkable compassion and intelligence.

Click on the video to meet an adorable 8 year old girl with ‘Mermaid Syndrome’ who has no desire for surgery to separate her fused legs.

This blog is the work of a gifted young woman who also has an amazing website, phreeque.com, where I spent hours and plan to spend more.

Thank you, Elizabeth. xxoo

    I was born with a congenital bilateral cleft lip and pallate and personally, I am GLAD that my parents had me go through surgeries. In fact I am 26 and still have 6 surgeries to go. Because of this I also fully support abortion if it is determined that the child will have a defect. Unless you live with being different, you can not understand the immeasurable price of being NORMAL. I would do ANYTHING to look normal. ANYTHING.

    I hear you.

    Thank you for commenting. Blessings to you with your surgeries. Let me know if I can be of service. If you like, I will post anything you want to say, as a ‘guest author.’

    Best,
    Sister Wolf
