The Deaf Culture has MANY very valid points on why cochlear implants are a bad idea, and I'm not convinced of the pro-CI propaganda.
Well that is a matter of opinion. It becomes a problem however if they start to influence policy makers and actually stop people from carrying out their decisions and choices.
Look I think it's fine for people who are opposed to CIs to voice their feelings and thoughts and perhaps if a parent listens to both sides they may choose one or the other.
I am pro choice. Choice for the parents and choice for the children when they grow up into adults. They have the choice to either continue with their CI or to turn it off if they no longer want it.
