One of my favorite people in the world is touched by Autism. She is really a second cousin, but in my family she is closer than a niece to me. If something happens to her parents I will become her guardian and I have invested a great deal of my time and income to insure that no matter what she is cared for properly the rest her life.
While I could not love her more if she were completely normal, I would give anything to spare her the difficulties she has endured and will endure due to Autism. Beyond that I have nothing to add to this debate since I am hardly unbiased and it is too emotional of a topic for me.
