Judge Rotenberg Center- NOT Autism Acceptance

I think it is important to get out the word about the Judge Rotenberg Center's abuse and torture of children and teens who are Autistic or have other disabilities. Since I do want this blog site to focus on Autism Acceptance Day and Month, and autism acceptance in general, I will post the link to my blog, rather than copying the information here. The primary reasons for posting it here are 1) It will show up more in search engines. 2) Autism acceptance cannot exist when people promote, condone, excuse, or turn a blind eye to the effects of non-acceptance, this being an extremely egregious example.
