Bioethical Considerations for Teachers of the Severe and Profoundly Retarded: A Position Paper.
Downie, Don; Snart, Fern
Special Education in Canada, v58 n1 p3-4 Fall 1983
The paper reviews bioethical positions regarding the "human-ness" of severely handicapped students, notes that the quality of life for many severely handicapped persons is directly threatened by the utilitarian position which questions the personhood of individuals with limited IQ, and asserts that the deontological postition is more aligned with normalization philosophy.
