Sobsey on Ashley X – A What Sorts Network Recap

Professor Dick Sobsey of the John Dossetor Health Ethics Centre at the University of Alberta has been blogging with the What Sorts Network since the very beginning. One of his areas of particular interest and experience is the Ashley X case. In this post we assemble together all of the posts made by Dick that refer to this case, creating a bridge between earlier articles on the subject and more recent ones that have come out of our series Thinking in Action: The Modern Pursuit of Human Perfection. If you are unfamiliar with the case then refer to the the first blog post highlighted here for additonal information.
