A Violation of Human Rights Re: Forcing A Deaf Child to Wear CI

Historically, women and girls have faced forced laws that tell them what to do with their bodies against their will which is a violation of human rights. The sad part is that it is still happening today here in America that the judge ordered the father to force his daughter to wear a cochlear implant at all waking hours. She already has a cochlear implant since 14 months old which works good for her until she got a second one at 5 1/2 years old, it is not as effective.
