I think you missed a little bit of my question.

Restated, should we find real disabled people to model.


Think about Rob Lowe and all the trouble he has gotten into by depicting a black soldier.

No, it is not unethical. This is not an editorial photo. You can find here many photos where people are playing some role, like teacher, painter, computer salesman, office clerk, but in their real life they are working for example as models or somebody else. Photography can be also an art, where people imagine and stage different situations.
