In defence of autism blogger Kathleen Seidel

April 7, 2008

Orac at Respectful Insolence has written this Open Letter

to two journalists, in an attempt to pressure them to defend Kathleen Seidel against a subpoena that would force her to disclose alot of private information about her and her sources and fellow bloggers. More information is contained in the letter which Orac has beautifully written.

The more people view this letter and circulate it through the blogosphere and the Internet, the better.

Anyone stopping by my blog, regardless of your position on autism rights, please do read this, and I hope you will do your part to pressure these two journalists to defend Ms. Seidel against this unfair subpoena. This is a blatant attempt to silence someone who has views counter to those of major organisations with a lot of funding……Autism Speaks, DAN, and others. It’s a fear tactic to attempt to set back progress of the autism rights movement.

Please do your part. Everyone in the right needs a good defence when they cannot defend themselves, by themselves.
