He added, “It puts a stake in the ground and says an individual’s got a right to reproduce whether or not they have a partner. It fundamentally alters who should be included in this group and who should have access to healthcare. It sets an international legal standard. Countries are bound by it.”
American Disabilities Act defines disability as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment.
Fortunately, this expansion in the definition has not been implemented yet. It is just a suggestion by WHO and it has attracted a lot of criticism from different social circles.
news report published in The Telegraph, WHO has changed its definition of a disabled person and included single people in the category because they are infertile and contributing nothing to the progress of human race.
The organization believes this classification will encourage Vitro fertilization for women and men who want to have a baby but couldn’t because they are not in a relationship.
Some people are not happy with this classification at all. Josephine Quintavalle, pro-life activist and director of Comment on Reproductive Ethics said, “This absurd nonsense is not simply re-defining infertility but completely side-lining the biological process and significance of natural intercourse between a man and a woman. How long before babies are created and grown on request completely in the lab?”
