  • Paralysed mum granted visitation rights
    summer at the home in Southern Carolina where her parents care for her Lisa Helfland Meyer lawyer for Dorn s parents said the decision set a precedent for every single parent out there with any sort of disability I think this is an astounding victory Meyer said at a news conference The court held that this parent has the same right as any other parent to have visitation and a relationship with their child Shaller s decision gave far less than the triplets grandparents requested and father Dan Dorn s lawyer Vicki Greene says her side got exactly what they wanted just five days of visits all supervised by the father Greene said the ruling confirmed their argument that grandmother Susan Cohen s beliefs were contradictory to those of the father and that her effect on the children was negative Pennsylvania bioethicist Art Caplan says children understand disability and are able to deal with situations like these The mother s condition may be disturbing but children like the rest of us can accommodate the reality of very severe disability To argue that severe disability ends one s rights to see one s children is simply wrong and ought be ruled

  • BioEdge: Locked-in syndrome woman receives Legion of Honour
    in France All life is worth living she told the newspaper It can be beautiful regardless of the state we are in And change is always possible That is the message of hope that I wish to convey I am firmly against euthanasia because it is not physical suffering that guides the desire to die but a moment of discouragement feeling like a burden All those who ask to die are mostly looking for love Despite her paralysis and her need for round the clock care she was inspired by her love for her family to fight for life My life is not what it could have been but it s my life Finally I have been faithful to my values I had the love of my husband and my daughter Miriam who was two years old at the time and that gave me the strength to fight Despite my difficulties speaking Miriam has always understood me She is proud to receive France s highest decoration The Legion of Honor is a great recognition and I am very proud and excited to be decorated Everyone who has a just and strong message to pass on should receive it Two years ago she wrote an article in which she strongly criticised discussion of euthanasia in the media Public statements produce unexpected collateral damage amongst people suffering from serious illness such as Locked In Syndrome We are constant consumers of TV and radio programs In response to our deep discouragement and who is free from that we are only offered this final right hypocritically baptised as a sign of love A recent study on the quality of life of locked in sydndrome patients found to the astonishment of the medical profession that when asked if you had a heart attack would you
