Here it is. Now what?

Terry Schiavo spawned a HUGE right-to-life debate and she was a

turnip.

THIS woman was conscious, talking, and waiting for her mother to arrive so that she could die in her arms...

and they pulled her vent because she had no insurance.

Although I LOVE the last line of the article: "George Bush has said he wants to expand healthcare for immigrants in this country."

Err.. OK SO?

He also said that Saddam had chemical weapons that he could deliver to US targets in under 45 minutes.

OK, the lesson learned is:

A) You have a right to life (even if you're about as alive as a toaster) provided they can still milk your insurance.

B) You have a right to life provided that you are not an african imegrant.

C) You have a right to life, if you can get the media to say you have.

D) All of the above.

Well, if you believe the "quality of life" arguement, this is right in line with all of it.


If you believe that lives have value, regardless of their "quality", then this a demonstration of a sick, demented government and bureaucracy run amok.


When you believe that citizens are the property of government (required for Socialism and Communism), you can't complain when this power is demonstrated.

I don't see anywhere in the article(s) where it mentions whether the woman wanted to remain on machine support or not.

Sadly it tends not to matter what the individual wants, it's all about what whoever can shout the loudest says should happen...
