>The Ashley Treatment is back

>I will write more about this later because this is a story that needs addressing.  I need some time to think on it though.

But I’ve just read that the Ashley Treatment has been decided by an ethics committee to be “Morally Permissible” in certain circumstances.  See: “Stunting disabled children’s growth is ‘morally permssible” group says” (h/t to BendyGirl).

They only looked at growth attenuation and not all the other issues that were involved in the treatment of Ashley X.  The very idea of it makes me feel sick however.
