Terry Schiavo REDUX!!

Look folks!! It's a Terry Schiavo REDUX!! Well, sort of!!

Right To Life Seeks To Intervene In Case Of Sedated Patient

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin Right to Life wants to intervene in a legal fight over whether a 54-year-old stroke victim should be allowed to die instead of being kept under sedation and on a feeding tube because she otherwise won't take food or drink.

The family of the woman said that they have gone to court to have the nutritional measures stopped.

But the anti-abortion group said in a motion that state law prohibits the woman's guardian or the court from ordering the withdrawal of nutrition and hydration.

Court records show the woman isn't in a persistent vegetative state and didn't express her wishes through a conversation or leave an advance directive authorizing such a move.

The patient has had seven strokes since 1995 and suffers a variety of other serious health problems including violent dementia, diabetes and pneumonia.

A hearing in the case is set next Wednesday.

When will these people keep their noses out of other people's business? Seriously!!

When this patient has constantly pulled out her tubes, what does that say to you? That says to me that she doesn't want them in her. That says to me that she doesn't want anything like them in her. The family members aren't trying to stop the removal.

Clearly, this isn't any of Wisconsin Right To Life's business. They have no business getting involved in a private family issue. They have no business getting involved in a private citizen's medical situation. They don't know this woman, yet they're all too eager to exploit her for some publicity. And that's exactly what they're attempting to do here. They're attempting to exploit her situation to further their so-called pro-life agenda. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't petition Congress to pass a private bill like they did in the Terry Schiavo situation. I'm waiting for the 24/7 coverage of these lunatics on television. I'm waiting for the back and forth court action. Trust me, it's coming!!

Here's a thought!! GET A LIFE INSTEAD OF TRYING TO INTERVENE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS!! This is none of their damn business, period!! Man, these people make me want to puke!!

    I wish they'd get this interested in saving our completely sentient GIs in Iraq.

    We'll probably be seeing more of these cases between now and November 2008. The neocons need to motivate their party base -- people who think you're only valuable of you're a fetus or terminally ill.
