Dan Olmsted's latest installement " What epidemic?" in the seemingly never-ending Age of Autism series is a powerful verbatim argument from a mother of an autistic child named Kendra Pettengill. She uses this very powerful metaphor:
"What if you announced tonight that 1 in every 150 children were being abducted from their beds every night? Parents would be screaming for the government, the police, somebody to do something. Well that is what is happening, except they are only taking our children`s brains and leaving the body behind."
