SEATTLE (AP) -- Seattle Children's Hospital has pulled bus ads that listed autism with diseases.
The sign on King County Metro buses showed a picture of a boy and the words "Let's wipe out cancer, diabetes and autism in his lifetime."
The Seattle Times reports the Autistic Self Advocacy Network's Washington chapter objected, saying autism is a disability, not an illness.
The bus ads withdrawn last week were part of the hospital's campaign to raise awareness about its research.
