Ashley X

Not a long post but I just want to add that personally I can see the parents side of the case in the dispute over the operation on Ashley X in Seattle. I spotted the story this morning on digg, then on the bbc then a comment over on Wings on Some Wheels. Personally I think that the operation will help the girl in the long run and its the parents at the end of the day who will be doing most of the girls care.

I do think the case should have had some legal scrutiny but hospital ethics committees are well equipped with the facts and are made up of a large number of people so if they OK'd it then I don't think they were too far out of line.
