For A Sustainable Inclusive 21st Century: What We Must Learn From Japanese Eugenic Protection Act, Toru Furui, Masayo Furui

Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability & Diversity Proceedings

The COVID-19 pandemic clearly tells us that eugenics had not died with Nazi ideologies. Current COVID-19 discussions emphasize on ‘triage’ and ‘social distance,’ all of which impacts and continues to threaten the lives of people with disabilities, higher-risked, and aging populations. The current pandemic is a warning that we all must understand and mitigate our internalized eugenic ideology so that our 21st century will be sustainable and inclusive for all. Otherwise, we all will be at risk of being killed because we’ve reached society’s social-limited-age. In order to gain a better understanding society must become aware of historical ...

Human Rights And Disability, Lowell Ewert

Conference: The Social Practice of Human Rights

In every context where racism, poverty, inequality, religious intolerance, or any other form of exploitation is present, persons with disabilities within the category experiencing discrimination are almost always worse off than their non-disabled peers. In this way, disability has the practical impact of magnifying discrimination and multiplying harmful practices. There is even evidence in some places that persons with disabilities have been deliberately targeted with violence. Additionally, sexual violence against disabled women and girls can be especially cruel.

Efforts to combat discriminatory practices that are primarily focused on addressing the concerns of the able-bodied often further exacerbate the general indifference ...


A Critical Analysis Of Intellectual Disabilities And End-Of-Life Decision Making, Saritha Farris Apr 2014

A Critical Analysis Of Intellectual Disabilities And End-Of-Life Decision Making, Saritha Farris

Graduate Research Symposium (GCUA) (2010 - 2017)

(Wagemans et al., 2010).

These factors then often culminate in the individual with IDs having decisions made for them by someone else, whom they ...
