On this blog, Professor Thaddeus Pope tracks judicial, legislative, policy, and academic developments concerning medical futility and the limits on individual autonomy at the end of life.
I find this far from inspiring and deeply discouraging. This video represents a decades old stereotype of the plucky cripple overcoming her disability. This sells well with mainstream audiences but falls flat for me. If I have overcome anything in life it is persistent prejudice and the blatant violation of my civil rights. The fact I encounter bigots and an inaccessible physical environment on a regular basis 20 years after the ADA is something the video diverts attention from. Sorry but these sort of videos are infuriating to me.
