W, the Texas Baby Killer

Found this post on DailyKOS on a tip from a friend:


By now most people who read liberal blogs are aware that George W. Bush signed a law in Texas that expressly gave hospitals the right to remove life support if the patient could not pay and there was no hope of revival, regardless of the patient's family's wishes. It is called the Texas Futile Care Law. Under this law, a baby was removed from life support against his mother's wishes in Texas just this week. A 68 year old man was given a temporary reprieve by the Texas courts just yesterday.

End slice:

We also know that W, presided as Governor of Texas during a period of numerous executions. We also know the horrendous record he has of being pro-life for innocent individuals in Iraq.

So, in action, W, Rove and Co are certainly in favor of murder (justified or not), and killing innocents. In words, they espouse a pro-life agenda. This is stupefying if anything else.

I am sure others have better words to explain this. Please comment to this post.

It's only gonna get more twisted and this is driving me insane.

Yes, let's keep Terri alive, but kill babies AGAINST the mother's wishes. Thanks GWB!

Just another ride down the rabbit hole with W and company.

Don't even try to look for a common, underlying thread of reason for any decisions he makes, unless you count business crony payback or voter pandering.

I wasn`t aware of the old bill. I`m English anyway and all I hear (from blogs especially) one side says she can`t talk and is in a coma and the other says she`s up and talking.

George Bush is a big fool. You are completely right about him being completely hypocritical when he talks about being a pro-lifer and signs execution warrants. You must remember though he is a politician. You can`t trust them.

Regardless of anyone's position on the issue, the Bush family got involved for political reasons.

yeah! A baby with non-developmental lungs is the same as a woman being givern food!
