Media statement: People with disabilities oppose Reeve's message

Written Material

This media statement and accompanying letter, express opposition to Christopher Reeve's 'cure' centered approach to disability. Three advocates call on the government to take action to improve the lives of people with disabilities, rather than simply supporting stem-cell research. Reeve's message reinforces the perception of disability as an imperfection, rather than working towards an inclusive society.
