Sharron Angle's offensive and damaging remarks about autism concern us all. By claiming that individuals and families "falsely label other symptoms as autism" in order to take advantage of insurance mandates, she damages the effort for full inclusion and civil rights of Autistic Americans, both young and old. We call on her to apologize for the insensitivity of her remarks and for the failure to recognize the legitimate health care needs of both the autism and maternity communities.
