Dover, DE (LifeNews.com) -- The family of Lauren Richardson continues to press her case and is now calling on the governor of Delaware for help to save her life. Richardson has become the next Terri Schiavo as her parents engage in a massive legal and philosophical debate about whether she should live or die.
Richardson is a 23-year-old woman who overdosed on heroin in August 2006 while she was three months pregnant with a baby girl.
Doctors kept Lauren on life support until she delivered her baby in February 2007. Shortly thereafter, her parents began a fight that is reminiscent of the battle over Terri's life and death.
Edith Towers, Lauren's mother, wants to remove her feeding tube and starve and dehydrate her to death in the same manner that Michael Schiavo subjected Terri.......
Please stand up for Lauren, one of your citizens. Jeb Bush walking away from Terri in 2005 is a visual in my head that I will never forget.
Don't be a Jeb, Governor Minner.
HELP LAUREN LIVE AND HOLD THAT LINE! (I haven't emailed Governor Minner the above. I'm just making this point for the purposes of the Let Lauren Live thread.) FV
