Except for The Daily Show and an occasional Everybody Loves Raymond rerun before I go to sleep, I really don’t watch TV. Therefore, the vast majority of TV shows on nowadays are completely foreign to me. However, I saw on a friend’s Facebook status today something about a show called The Doctors, and an episode running tomorrow discussing plastic surgery “on Down syndrome children!” If you go to The Doctors right now, you’ll see a snippet of a preview where someone, I assume a doctor, proclaims, “It would be unfair to judge a parent who was exploring this option, that’s what I believe.”
Unfair, my foot! This is a new low in a culture obsessed with perfection and appearances. I’m appalled and disgusted.
