According to writer Grace Dow, “People with disabilities may be unable to live in their communities without cases like Olmstead v. L.C. I am grateful that the institutionalization of disabled people was found to be discriminatory. I would have a considerably lower quality of life if I were in a nursing home. I wouldn’t be able to go shopping, or to the movie theater. I want to make my own decisions, and living in my apartment allows me to do that.” Read the full blog post here.
