Eugenics by Any Other Name –Eliminating Autism

Here’s a series of blog posts by Silent Wave that everyone on the autism spectrum should read. They’re based on her discovery that MIT will be doing research on autism, thanks to a $20m grant. The goal isn’t just to find the causes of autism, but to eliminate it completely. And, I suspect, by any means necessary.

Asperger’s / autism, genetics, & MIT ~ Part 2: Jurautistic Park (nature likes us!)

Asperger’s / autism, genetics, & MIT ~ Part 3: The Lernaean Hydra

Asperger’s / autism, genetics, & MIT ~ Part 4: A (mistaken) “utopia”

And here’s the press release from MIT. Notice the language being used. And note (from other sources since MIT didn’t think it was that important) that the munificent donors have two grown autistic children of their own. One can only assume that they would have preferred to make sure those two could never have been born.
