Charlie Swinbourne On The Stem Cell Breakthrough And Deaf Culture

September 14, 2012

Charlie Swinbourne makes some excellent points in this article. He says that the search for a cure for deafness is a matter of personal choice.

He also says that the group of Deaf people least likely to search for any cure are those who are deaf from birth. As a person who has been physically disabled since birth, I personally strongly agree and identify with this point. I have been disabled for so long now that it has become the most important part of my identity. I fully support the idea of treatment to aim for improvement in any disability, but even given a chance, I don’t think I would want a complete cure for myself.
