Disability and Bioethics

I just happened to come across the April edition of the AMA Journal of Ethics and realized that the ENTIRE edition is devoted to disability and medicine!  Included in the issue is a review of Rosemarie Garland-Thompson's article "The Case for Conserving Disability", the article that Sarah brought to class on Tuesday, and an article about prenatal testing and eugenics.  I haven't had a chance to read all the articles yet, but thought that you all would be equally interested in discussions of disability in the context of bioethics/ medical ethics.
