The “myth” of individualist ideology

Laura Wolk says her blindness allows her to perceive the ‘myth’ of an individualistic ideology that also drives demand for abortion.

“[T]he individualistic conception of freedom is extraordinarily under-inclusive and shallow, because it defines out so much of what it means to be human. . . There’s something that every single person, even the most severely disabled, can teach us about what it means to be human. There’s also something prideful in assuming that the qualities possessed most readily by the majority represent the apex of flourishing and success.”

The whole article is well worth the few minutes it takes to read it:  Blind woman says disability reveals myths underlying abortion – CRUX. Give yourself a few extra minutes to ponder it prayerfully.
