I hate to say this, but I predict a left wing backlash on a small scale against this. They've been attacking people for using the ear pieces (the implants), for "destroying the culture of the deaf", and have encouraged parents not to let there kids go for the surgery. Alot of liberals (also known as sicko's) are more concerned about maintaining a "sufficient" number of deaf people, for future generations to "preserve there culture".

WHere do you get your information that these are left wing or liberals? I have to tell you, it doesnt matter what the ideology. When a parent implants a child, they need to make the decision themself for the child and for themselves. It is up to the parent to become knowledgable about the implants. Once in a while the implant does not work the way the family wants it to. There are plenty of Democrats getting the implant too...I was at UCLA a couple months ago and there were several left wing looking people with implants and one woman in particular had a button that said "Proud American against the War". Your logic makes no sense.
