The Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities as a human rights treaty, has the clearest language in terms of sexual and reproductive health, as well as family, parenthood and relationships. Consent to sex and relationships should be treated on an equal basis for all persons, regardless of disability. Told through the voice of a storyteller, with an academic response, this chapter is an exploration of the legal and social barriers that interact with each other creating situations of discrimination and oppression for people with disabilities.
