Arkan Posted January 21, 2007 Share Posted January 21, 2007 Ashley Treatment' Questioned By ParentsNEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2006(CBS) Her name is Ashley and she's 9 years old. But she has the mental and physical abilities of a 3-month-old, and will for the rest of her life. Two years ago, her parents made a decision to essentially freeze her in time with a treatment called growth attenuation therapy. CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller reports. "What they were asking to do was something that many of us hadn't thought about doing before," says Dr. Dough Diekema of Seattle Children "Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." - Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials "I have also been slowly coming to the realisation that knowledge and happiness are not necessarily coincident, and quite often mutually exclusive" - meta Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
