Mod Bush's concern over Terri Schiavo -1 Disingenuous...

When GOP Religious Right thugs start talking about Terri Schiavo and how great it was that the GOP-dominated Congress and the Dear Leader "saved" her, ask them about two people who don't have as good of PR, and health insurance, as Ms. Schiavo.

Ask them about two cases in Texas. Ask them about Spiro Nicolouzos, who is being forced off of life support because his family is poor and doesn't have health insurance. Also ask them about a dead Black baby boy named Sun Hudson. Same situation. Because of a law George W. Bush signed as Governor, the medically indigent can be taken off life support if their care is considered "futile."

I suppose that the worth of human life is, um...conditional. Conditional upon one's ability to pay.
