If you live long enough, you'll find yourself in the category called "disabled" eventually. It's just basic entropy at work. It happens to some people sooner than later, while other people are born into that category.

If you're okay with taking away the rights of disabled people, (besides deserving to go to hell for being a fundamentally cruel person) you're taking away rights that you may well need to rely on someday. If you're not in the category called "disabled," then you're in the only other possible category called "temporarily abled."

If you have a human body, you can become disabled easily---it could happen to you today. Think about that.
