Response re limb lengthening
24 January 2007 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was shocked to see the message criticizing Emily Sanford's decision (with her family) to undergo limb lengthening - obviously that choice belongs to her and her family, and much thought must have gone into weighing the benefits and drawbacks. The technology exists, and as Emily pointed out in her reply, she has received its benefits. In my opinion it would be more appropriate to respond with sympathy and understanding than to criticize from the sidelines.

Where I live there has been a campaign underway to raise funds for a young man who is enduring limb lengthening now - he has rightly received a great deal of support from the community, fiscal and otherwise.

The documentary was wonderful - the presentation makes the point that we are all striving to be OK in this world, by presenting the subjects of the film as the normal people that they are. Frankly, the film focuses more on "abilities" than "disabilities", and that's a good thing.

**UPDATE** - the original posting by GhostMint from May 2006 appears to be missing. It was withdrawn?
