Disability rights activists often claim that disability is not—by itself—something that makes disabled people worse off. A popular objection to such a view of disability is this: were it correct, it would make it permissible to cause disability and impermissible to cause nondisability (or impermissible to “cure” disability, to use the value-laden term). The aim of this article is to show that these twin objections don’t succeed.
