Regardless of how she conveyed it, she was fluent enough to capture a further side of what might be called brave new world liberalism, when she told the Washington Post‘s Fred Hiatt, “Progress in genetics is leading to the idea that you could choose not to have a deaf child.” In other words, someday there may be no need for schools for the deaf such as Gallaudet.
