Skip to comments.Ben Carson says the Terri Schiavo case was ‘much ado about nothing’

Leading Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson believes that federal and state official overreacted in the case of Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman who died in 2005 as her husband and family battled over whether to keep her alive despite her vegetative state.
The case roiled the state of Florida and sparked an emotional national debate about the ethics, politics and spiritual significance of her life and death.
After speaking at a Republican Party conference here on Friday, a reporter asked Carson what he thought of the infamous case -- one that Bush speaks about occasionally as he mounts his own presidential campaign.
"We face those kinds of issues all the time and while I don't believe in euthanasia, you have to recognize that people that are in that condition do have a series of medical problems that occur that will take them out," he said. "Your job [as a doctor] is to keep them comfortable throughout that process and not to treat everything that comes up."

A VERY disappointing thing for Dr. Carson to say.
Lets all jump in and defend Ben Carson. He is always right. Right?
EEO all day, every day.
Foot take that ... bang, bang. Reload, shoot other foot tomorrow.
Looks like Dr Ben really does not want to win.
Shut-up while you’re ahead, Ben.
This guy is a kook and Trump will win and beat the criminal hillary easy.
This from the oh SOOOOOOOOOO “kind”, “gentle”, “CHRISTIAN” doctor, who walks on water and who shouldn’t ever be “insulted” by facts about him. /s
Why is he still number 2?!?!?! Why?!?!?!
Well FR does have a contingent of hard leftists that will excuse any act of liberalism and fight for 3 years over it when it comes to electing liberals no matter what as a lesser evil, so I expect plenty of Carson backing to continue unabated.
It’s what they do.
Pardon me, Dr. Carson but if every life doesn’t matter then none do.
I do not understand how you could take an oath to protect life and then make such am uninformed comment. You are no better than Jeb!
He’s NOT “ahead” and he needs to join the likes of those with NO chance of winning any primaries.
Thanks to RetSignman for this graphic.
Only as long as he can be used against Donald Trump. After that, then the Kindly and Soft-Spoken Doctor Ben Carson can be wrong again.
Yes he does because stupid goofball conservatives pay no attention to his policies, they just pay attention to evil Trump attacking poor Ben as poor Ben lines his pockets with fundraising cash.
Ben may win it all.
Sending women to places to kill their babies and supporting those who starved a defenseless woman to death. What a legacy has Ben Carson.
