I learned that February 25–International Cochlear Implant Day. It is personal experience for me. Why? Seven years ago, February 2013, I had first heart attack, and brought to the emergency room. I was asked whether I would like to have a cochlear implant during emergency heart attack, and that was a big insult.
I am Deaf, and a human being. They look at me as human doing. Why? MONEY. They do not care. Wipe out the term of ‘Deaf’–a form of insult. For a week now, I had been reading a lot of books, found excellent quotes, in relation to cochlear implant. It is pure evil. Important to see those quotes that apply today.
Today, we cannot give up and continue to protest against corruption, aka cochlear implant industries. We need more survivors who experienced cochlear implant and share stories. Why? Their stories would become ours. Cochlear implant industries are raking in BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. Why they are taking over the Deaf community? That is PURE EVIL.
So, here comes the quotes:
[Alexander Graham Bell] his legacy has empowered medical experimentation–the colonial explorations of the physical bodies of the deaf–underwriting cochlear and neural implant technologies ever in search of the site of language, the unmediated experience of the word–Owen Wrigley
Such treatment of Deaf people constitutes a clear form of what can only be recognized as genocide.–Paddy Ladd
…deaf people are only a “damaged” subset of the surrounding culture.–Jack Bilmes
[Jacob Rodrigo Pereira] There will be no more deaf-mutes. There will be deaf speaking ones.–Bender, 1970.
Like the Nazis, they seem to enjoy experimenting on little children–MJ Bienvenu

This has been a goal of the eugenics world and its tax-exempt foundations since eugenics pioneer Alexander Graham Bell–a leader of the early eugenics societies–spotlighted the deaf for elimination.–Edwin Black
The Deaf community certainly is not free of bigotry.–Doe, T. 1994
….generates a feeling of inferiority as to their status in the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone.–Chief Justice Earl Warren
….the world has changed, that the human rights phenomenon renders human rights foundationalism outmoded and irrelevant.–Rabossi
….because old beliefs die hard even when demonstrably false.–Rosenbaum
A merging of the medical and educational communities has become a necessity.–J.L. Bader
….a machine to hear for them, a machine that should render visible to the eyes of the deaf the vibrations of the air that affect our ears as sound…–Alexander Graham Bell (Mackenzie, 1928)
Earth hath no hate but love to hatred turned, and hell no fury but a baby scorned.–Ian Suttie
Most recent as of Feb 23, 2020: Cochlear Implant recall. Shell out more than $50 million dollars in the recall…it is like too cute for the settlement and don’t care…
SHOWING THE IMAGE OF COCHLEAR IMPLANT RECALL: Advanced Bionics is recalling some defective cochlear implants that were never implanted. The company will shell out more than $50 million in the recall. The recall involves the HiRes Ultra and Ultra 3D….
Today and tomorrow, Deaf babies will be continue to be manipulated and….manufactured…like labs.
