Purely annecdotal, but:
My son's best friend in school is a girl who, while I don't think she was as early as 23 weeks, comes awful close with how preemie she was. She also is afflicted with the effects of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and a whole mess of bad things early in her childhood (she's been adopted by her paternal grandparents, and her mom was essentially laughed out of court by the judge when she tried to contest the adoption).
For all of that she is a bright, active 7-year old girl. She's got her problems, but she's got a set of parents who love her, a set of coping skills that let her keep up with the rest of her classes, and friends like my son, who don't see her as any more or less "different" than any of her other classmates are.
I can well predict the rant I'd get if I were to show this article to her dad tomorrow, and for reasons like Andrea, this doctor disgusts me.
