in the next few days and weeks you are going to see a *lot* of progressives showing their entire ass on the subject of ableism and eugenics, because an open secret is that large swathes of the left are every bit as ableist as the right
the perspectives and contributions of disabled leftists have systematically been deprecated, ignored, and forgotten, and disability justice perspectives have been fought against and policed out at every level, from democrats to the DSA to your local activist groups.
when you see major left and progressive organizations making huge blunders on the subjects of ableism, of medical eugenics and disability justice, understand that what you are seeing is the fruit of a culture that systematically disempowers, ignores, and removes disabled comrades
