This is not hypothetical

In a world where disabled people are murdered by their caretakers and loved ones all the time, and the public shakes their head, says, “That’s terrible, but you can understand where they were coming from,” we don’t need movies that position the life of a disabled individual as the starting point for a discussion about assisted suicide.

That is in fact grossly, staggeringly inappropriate.
