Sun Rises In East. Ralph Nader Does Something Asinine.
Courtesy of Hullaballoo, we find Ralph Nader being a liar, a moron, or quite possibly both:
Consumer Advocate Ralph Nader and Wesley J. Smith, author of the award winning book "Culture of Death: The Assault on Medical Ethics in America" call upon the Florida Courts, Governor Jeb Bush and concerned citizens to take any legal action available to let Terri Schiavo live. "A profound injustice is being inflicted on Terri Schiavo," Nader and Smith asserted today. "Worse, this slow death by dehydration is being imposed upon her under the color of law, in proceedings in which every benefit of the doubt-and there are many doubts in this case-has been given to her death, rather than her continued life." Among the many injustices in this case, Nader and Smith point to the following: The courts not only are refusing her tube feeding, but have ordered that no attempts be made to provide her water or food by mouth. Terri swallows her own saliva. Spoon feeding is not medical treatment. "This outrageous order proves that the courts are not merely permitting medical treatment to be withheld, it has ordered her to be made dead," Nader and Smith assert.There's so much bullshit here I really don't know where to start. Someone send this link to Ralph: http://www.miami.edu/ethics2/schiavo/timeline.htm That way, he'll know that Terri had years and years and YEARS of therapy, but it didn't do any good because her cerebral cortex no longer exists: http://phoenixwoman.blogspot.com/2005/03/tale-of-two-scans.html But knowing Ralph, this won't make a dime's worth of difference with him.
