Heye all – happy happy new year to you all.
and yes i am happy. i am happy cuz we STAND. no matter what comes our way and lawd or lawd why is that crap being thrown at us on NEW YEARS DAY! crud but no matter – we STAND.
We aint going down without a fight try as they may to diminish, dismiss, eradicate, disenfranchise, undermine, etc etc etc still we stand and…
we might as well start the new year off right. Yep genetic engineering is the new frontier folks. CI+AVT are a done deal – they r gonna be in almost every home and we will be regulated to the familiar duty of picking up the pieces. We will still challenge, we will still bring forth the truth, we will still advocate for the birthright to a fully natural and accessible language but we must also expand our horizons to advocating for the right to birth.
YEP folks r gonna start going FULL force to try to stop Deaf babes from being created. I kid u not. its been in the works for a while now. i have NO idea why so many Deaf folks ran off to get the Connenix 26 tested thinking that they were not getting coded and tagged and marked for eradication. Cosigning deafness to history – YEP! that be their aim.
so its on the table – everybody STAND
lots of other comments there to read too
(Note in copying and pasting my original formatting got lost – so if paragraphs help u process my unique writing style better – just go to the link and scroll down)
part I is about the UK bill and AG bell
part II is about the Nazi Sterilization law during WW II
part III is about the Nazi abortion and lethal injection and gassing of the “unfit”
so we see “to be or not to be” Deaf rest in our hands
and so we see “to be or not to be” a Happy New Year depends upon YOU
A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.~ Gandhi
happy new year folks
Is it in humanities best interest for govt or parents or doctors to be selecting anyBODY?meaning shouldnt somethings just be? are we using genetic screening and engineering for a brave new world – either towards breeding MORE “healthy” babies or restricting the right for Deaf genes to be the UK has already passed a law forbidding the use of Deaf gametes for implanting – those defective ones have to be tossed. they can not be used.Now i understand ur question about folks actively using genetic engineering to create a designer Deaf baby but really that is a falsehood – no one has done that and no one would be allowed to do that. The doctors, the systems etc are not gonna allow it. They wont allow u to toss all the “healthy” gametes to favor the “Deaf” ones only. But they will allow, encourage, and in some cases legislate that you use ONLY the “healthy” ie “Hearing” ones and toss all the “defective” ie “Deaf” ones.Your worry really should be towards science and medicine pushing to do UNnatural selection. Deaf folks r on this planet for a reason just as other variations of the human race are here too – we are all mutations – some just show it a bit better than others. The fact that you choose to frame being Deaf as a societal burden and tragedy is really unbecoming coming from a doctor who put forth the principle of doctoring.see us as human first and as folks who contribute to society – not as disposables or as folks who are making a mad rush to reject Hearing offsprings and only aim to create Deaf ones. That is not happening at all. Some Deaf folks might hope for Deaf children – might look for ways to increase the likelihood of having a Deaf offspring but NO Deaf person that i know of has tried to use genetic screening to reject non-Deaf embryos. Whereas folks (the systems – govt and medical providers) have actively tossed Deaf embryos.so if u r gonna worry about the future applications of genetic engineering worry about how it is really being used and abused and that is to CREATE DESIGNER “FIT” BABIESand that is bloody eugenics and wrong why isnt their an outcry about that????it might be that doctors by the nature of your work have difficulty seeing Deaf as normal but that is truly how most Deaf people see themselves. Women, African-Americans, Gays etc have all been saddled with outrageous accusations and falsehoods of being “lesser humans” of having medical / biological conditions that make them a liability to society but we know this is UTTERLY untrueso too we see how folks want to frame Deaf or other different folks as undesirable. ’tis a pity we cant keep the “human” in HUMANity if we deem to medicate and re-create it in a false image of “perfection” and “normalcy” happy new year – may it be filled with no one deciding who is fit to be made and who is not because once we go down that route its not long before we see “First they came for….”peace & love patti durr
