CBS News inexplicably turns 11-y.o.'s plight into a "right-to-die" case
• Edited by a Moderator • News headline: Mass. To Review Right-To-Die Case
I couldn't put • Edited by a Moderator • News' bizarre spin to the coals better than this:
Exactly. Flipping. RIGHT! • Edited by a Moderator • News - America's main source for "fake, but accurate" reporting - has absolutely no business calling this a "right-to-die" case. This is a right-to-life case. Haleigh is breathing on her own now after months of being on a ventilator and she eventually may come out of her supposedly irreversible coma. "Right-to-die," indeed! The mind boggles at • Edited by a Moderator • News' deplorable, death-loving mentality.

As usual, Jinx, in his never ending quest to be offended has spun things either intentionally dishonestly or has spun out of ignorance.
1. The article is an AP article that CBS picked up.
2. The title does not reflect CBS or AP's opinion but rather the argument of both the state and the child's biological mother who said, "All I want is for her to rest. Being kept alive is no life."
So, Jinx, while I agree and share your outrage at the circumstance, your spin of CBS missed the larger point which is the tragedy of this young woman's life."Yes, I'm quite concerned about health care issues surrounding leaked radiation from Japan. Now, please pass me my super sized, bacon double cheeseburger, combo meal..."
When I was young I admired clever people. Now that I'm older I admire kind people.~Rabbi Abraham Heschel
My most recent faith struggle is not one of intellect. I don't really do that anymore. Sooner or later you just figure out there are some guys who don't believe in God and they can prove He doesn't exist, and some other guys who can prove He does exist, and the argument stopped being about God a long time ago and now it's about who is smarter, and honestly, I don't care. ~ Don Miller Blue Like Jazz

So much is now explained!
Kiwimac"Mere mechanical infallibility is but a poor substitute for a plenary Inspiriation, which finds its expression in the right relation between partial human knowledge and absolute Divine truth." (Introduction to the Study of the Gospels, Westcott, p.41).
Poverty is not only low income and no assets. It is a condition of exclusion from the institutions and organizations of modern life. In many countries law courts, banks, education, health services, roads, water, electricity, even respect, are not available to the poor.
