Why Cure Is Controversial

The notion of curing a rare disease can be controversial. Tom Shakespeare, a bioethicist and disability rights advocate, helps explain why.

Tom Shakespeare is a bioethicist at the London School of Hygene and Tropical Medicine. He’s also a disability rights advocate. Tom was born with achondroplasia, the most common cause of Dwarfism.
