Either you are pro-life or you are not. Being pro-life means accepting the financial aspects of keeping people alive and not murdering them or killing them from non-assistance. Terri Shivo down in Florida was basically killed by the government and you both seem to be on the government side because of money. A very scary slippery slope you are on and one that all of us will be on soon. This is what happens when morals are lost.

There were a lot of people who were totally in favor of sustaining Terri Schiavo, but had no inclination to step up to the plate when it came to paying for the lifetime nursing care she would require. I guess they believed the nursing home had a magic dwarf that could spin straw into gold, or something.

Are you ready to increase taxes to the extent needed to provide not only basic nutrition, but also no-holds-barred high tech care for every person on life support in America?

If you are, I commend you on your lack of hypocrisy.

If we really want to save some cash let’s profile DNA and abort any baby that has the potential for expensive diseases.

Why should the tax payer be punished by medically burdensome people?

You need to go back and read the history
Terri's FAMILY was willing to take on her care
She had a big insurance settlement to help pay and yes,, she then probably would have been on MEDICAID when that money was gone

The issue was that her “husband” who had consistently resisted ANY potential rehab therapy for her, would NOT divorce her and give her back to her family

even though he had started another family

one belief was that had she recovered her communication ability he may have been implicated in the injuries that caused her brain damage
