:: [Prev] let there be no doubt [Next]
Following Mr. Jimmie's lead, I would like to take this opportunity to say to the world (until we get the legal documents in place) that if I end up in a persistent vegetative state with no hope of recovery, I want to be allowed to die. I can't stand the thought of a bunch of rat-bastard Republicans shedding crocodile tears over my pre-corpse and forcing my family to pump nutrients into my lifeless husk for eternity. (Really, they're going to have to take Terri Schiavo's feeding tube out at some point, right? Who will decide when that time is? When she's 60? 80? When her parents die? When Jeb Bush dies?)

Aww--but then you would miss your chance to testify before Congress!

That's just horrible. Can Bill Frist's medical license be revoked? Between this and his assertion that AIDS can be spread through tears and saliva, he is thoroughly unfit to practice medicine.

I agree--it's a pretty desperate move on his part. I can't imagine they expect to follow through on that, at least I would hope.
My fear is that they'll set up some sort of camera feed into the poor woman's hospital room, all the while claiming they're doing it "to protect her dignity."

You know EXACTLY when it'll be...when there's no more money available to fund her continued upkeep.
