Folks, a 23-year-old autistic man named Paul Corby is being denied a heart transplant - simply because he has autism. The doctor expressed more interest in the fact that he could not name all his medications (of which he takes 19), and the the fact that he carries a Princess Peach doll for comfort - than the fact that he has never smoked or drank alcohol. This is discrimination, pure and simple - and this cannot stand.
Please sign the petition, so that he can get the heart transplant that he needs. And please reblog - so that this can reach as many people as possible.
I’m going to reblog this every time it comes up on my dash.
You wanna tell me your ‘Autism is an epidemic!! Autism must be cured!!’ bullshit is a good thing? This dude could die because our lives are seen as less than. How the fuck is that fair? How the fuck is that a good thing?
I can’t sign with a UK address, but you all should!
