Eliminaton Communication: Theoretically...

I loved this theoretical parallel, definitely makes me think....

What if your mother was in a nursing home, and she called and told you about a policy change at the home.  The nursing home decided that due to a staff shortage, all the residents who can not go to the bathroom without assistance must wear Depends.  They will be changed on a two hour schedule.  Your mother complains that she sometimes goes to the bathroom a few minutes after her Depends has been changed but must sit in it for the next two hours because the staff refuses to give her a clean one, even if she requests it.  Wouldn't you be appalled at that treatment?  Why?  Because human beings should not have to sit in their own waste.  Now isn't your baby as much of a human being as your mother?
