CW: American eugenics in the time of corona. States announcing they will deny life-saving treatment to corona patients if they have disabilities such as “Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and other such conditions.”
For anyone who has ever said, “it can’t happen here…”
Yes, it can. And it has already (as you will well know if you’ve been reading my blog for years.)
And it is again.
For everyone who has ever thought that it should happen here, please kindly identify yourselves now so I know whom to cough on when I finally get corona.
For everyone else in America, please speak up to your elected officials, advocacy groups and groups like the Autistic Self Advocacy Network and others. This needs to be publicized and cause outrage.
And for everyone else in the world, can someone please just sponsor my Partner, Sibling and I for emigration? Because I wanted out of this fucking immoral hellhole where even blue states practice eugenics yesterday. (I don’t actually have corona, I promise!)
Read the article below. Share a moment of understanding with my 2018 self about why I so often wish that a whole lot of abusive assholes would socially distance themselves about six feet off a three-foot pier.
Explain to me why I should ever want to socially un-distance myself from people again when this is “all over?”
