Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

This Is A Right-To-Life Issue

Earlier this week some radio buffoons decided to do what radio personalities sometimes do to boost their ratings, and they made some horribly disrespectful, ignorant statements regrading Stephen Hawking's physical condition. Stephen Hawking has motor neuron disease. ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) is also a form of motor neuron disease.

Rather than have an intelligent discourse, the radio clowns made fun of the man's physical state.

This is a right-to-life issue. I'll not give the fools with a radio show the benefit of added publicity on this website (your friend Google can find them if you're that curious). All who are interested in respect-life issues need to pay attention and demand respect for those who are dealing with ALS. I also expect our ALS organizations to make some simple and direct statements about respecting the valuable lives of those with ALS.
