    As a speech therapist, I have worked with severely disabled children. HOW DARE THEY!!!

    So the little blind child with CP that just left me to go to kindergarten would be taken from his loving family--sisters and brothers who have helped him learn to walk and do so many things?

    The little one in a wheel chair who has leaned to communicate with a device and has told us he loves us? Taken away.

    How many of these same people claim to be pro-life?

      severe disability I'm right there with you. CHILDREN!!!!

      How the hell do they justify this??? There are laws!!! YES laws to prevent this!!! I guess by not taking federal monies they found a way to circumvent the federal protection systems in place. That's the only thing I can think of at the moment. I'm far to outraged to really think clearly. This needs to turn into a national out cry. Every parent with a child with a disability needs to know about this. This goes beyond civil rights--this is nothing short than a denial of basic human rights.

      The advocate in me want to hurt someone for this...Children, babies for Christ sakes. Small children isolated, teenagers locked in a world of elderly people...How the hell does this happen??? Where are the safety nets?

      And this isn't just a few administrations...Bush, Crist, and Scott all have a lot to answer for--And that AG? Ambushed? No, she lost control of the situation and now she's going to have to deal with it--And I'm going to being cheering for the powers that be to bring her to her knees.
