Should the "Disabled" have more rights?
So, imagine if you had to fight in court to make decisions about your own life, go to work, and live with whomever you wanted to. The ruling is a good step towards more disability rights, and basic humans rights. Like freedom of movement, individual autonomy, and free association.
These basic rights though have been repeatedly denied to people with disabilities. Many, like this woman, are held against their will in group homes. In quite a number of these group homes, the staff sexually abuse the people being forced to live their. Nothing ever happens to the staff, but they're allowed to repeatedly get away with it, or are just transfered to another group home to abuse more people. Disabled women are twice as likely to be sexually abused than that of the general population of women. http://www.usu.edu/saavi/info/stats.cfm The state have enabled an assault on women with disabilities.
So, yeah, should people with disabilities have way more rights than they do now?
