A quote from A Salon article, regarding an American couple that were criminally charged after dropping their disabled child off at a hospital, because they felt that they could no longer care for him:

“It’s very disturbing to think a parent would get to the stress level that would cause them to abandon a child,” said Diane Carey, executive director of the Chester County chapter of Association for Retarded Citizens (ARC), an advocacy group for the retarded.

Bullshit. It’s very disturbing to think that someone who runs an agency like ARC would say something that naive about the families they are supposed to be helping.
