The strange story came to my attention through a friend and actual paraplegic, Chelsea Zimmerman. I highly recommend you visit Chelsea's Blog: Reflections of a Paralytic at http://reflectionsofaparalytic.com
Paraplegic wannabe Chloe Jennings-White found some unethical doctor somewhere who is willing to surgically sever her spinal cord if she could only raise the necessary $25,000 required to render this able-bodied woman disabled. Perhaps she could start a fund raising event: "Help Chloe become paraplegic." Sheesh!
For someone like me who is actually disabled with multiple sclerosis, and in a wheelchair, I can only dream of walking again.
Does Jennings-White fantacize about attention she would get being in a wheelchair? Sorry Chloe, people tend to avoid those in wheelchairs. Does she have a right to be disabled? Don't laugh, people are now saying they have a right to choose the time and place of their assisted suicide, and places like Oregon and the state
of Washington actually grant it. Like I say, the world is going crazy.
Jennings-White suffers from a psychiatric condition known as Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID). She believes her body is telling her that her legs should not work. Her view of reality is skewed. She is sick, I get that, but are we supposed to buy into this nonsense like we are supposed to buy into sex change surgery at taxpayer expense (my Canadian province of Alberta does that) or assisted suicide as some sort of right?
I hope nobody helps Chloe Jennings-White to harm herself. - MDP
