We have analyzed laws to examine if there are any existing discourses about disabled, and how the discourses have affected their lives and rights of reproduction. We also wanted to see what designations that where used to describe the group. The conclusions of the assignment were the following, society found the disabled in fault of economic crisis during this time. Society used the disabled as a scapegoat for the existing social problems.
