Human Exceptionalism

Life and dignity with Wesley J. Smith.

Haleigh Poutre Update


The blood family of child abuse victim Haleigh Poutre wants justice for the near dehydration of Haleigh--who doctors said was in a PVS, but who can apparently now talk. There are complications about the family that I don't want to get into, e.g., the mother lost her parental rights after which Haleigh was adopted to the family who almost killed her. But it is a matter of crucial public concern to learn why an abused little girl came within a hair's breadth of being dehydrated to death. Protecting her "privacy" should not be a way of covering up a near egregious human rights abuse.
