In light of the recent discussions on national health reform, which so far have not focused on people with disabilities, this article serves as a call to action for the legal community to join in the local efforts to ensure that the civil rights of people with disabilities do not continue to be violated resulting in gross health disparities. This article provides readers with an understanding of a largely overlooked health care crisis through the lens of the disability rights movement.
