Correction to last post
Nulono points me to this article, which basically says that Dr. New's statements have been taken out of context and that her efforts are actually meant to treat a serious medical condition. Without knowing the relationship between Dr. Maria New and Dr. Alice Dreger (who first voiced her concern about New's work in Bioethics Forum), I can't say if this is "character assassination" or valid criticism. In any event, the technology itself does not matter nearly so much as how it is used. It remains important for us to make sure that doctors do not abuse dex in a way that violates the rights of little girls.
