When I came across this book in my news feed on Facebook I was infuriated , the heading alone is enough to make someone from the autism community weep....

autistic people are not to be feared , hated, cured, abused, humiliated , used as a means to gain money , they are people just like everyone else...

if this book were tilted (how to prevent Down's syndrome  ) ( how to prevent your child from been gay)  it would not of been touched by anyone, but society still have yet to step up and change the views on autistic children and adults!!

what right has anyone to change another human from who they were born to be? I cannot cure treat prevent my child from been autistic anymore than could if he/she were gay nor would I want to...

autisitc people are been abused all over this world, portrayed as damaged!! Damaged.. could you imagine for one moment what that must be like ? To be feared to be abused to be hated to be seen as wrong  all because you were born different?!

this book is a slap in the face to the autistic community . By allowing it to be sold Amazon are sending a message to the world that autism is wrong that it is not right that you should fear the thoughts of your child been born autistic ..

please join me in asking Amazon to stand with the autism community not against them!!

they are people , they are our sons and daughters, husbands and wives, teachers, doctors, artists, builders, dancers, singers, actors and actresses and so much more,  they have rights just like everyone else , what rights do anyone have to tell them they shouldn't be here?!!!!NONE...

Amazon I implore you to remove this book , supporting autism community the right way..

thank you,Gillian
