Update on my petition

Support is growing!
We now have well over 400 signatures on this petition. There is much ignorance about learning disability, but disabled young people have exactly the same right to life as their non-disabled peers. I remember a poster campaign run by Mencap when I was in my teens, with the slogan “We may not think as quickly but we feel as deeply.” Please will you help me to share this campaign and encourage your friends to sign too? We owe it to some of the most vulnerable members of our society to defend their interests. Whether or not you’re religious, I’m sure most of us can endorse these sentiments from the Bible: Speak out in order to judge with righteousness and to defend the needy and the poor.
