That's the question Bobby Schindler asked in the case involving Jesse Ramirez, the Arizona man whose case paralleled that of Schindler's sister, Terri Schiavo, until Ramirez woke up. The Arizona Republic reports:
...Bobby Schindler of the Florida-based Terri Schindler Shiavo Foundation placed the blame on a medical establishment quick to dismiss patients with brain injuries.Why is Jesse alive? His family sought legal intervention with the help of the Alliance Defense Fund:
Schindler is the brother of Terri Schiavo, a brain-damaged Florida woman who died in 2005 after a decades-long court battle.
"What is the rush?" he asked. "This is not the first time we've heard of cases like this where doctors want to write off the chance of recovery, and the family, when they're told this, will make a decision to end a person's life.
"In the case of Mr. Ramirez, he'd be dead now."
His siblings and parents refused to give him up for dead, and today, Jesse Ramirez is alive and conscious.
Two weeks ago, he was the center of a family battling over of whether he should live or die.
Now, he can hug and kiss, nod his head, answer yes and no questions, give a thumbs-up sign and sit in a chair.
A Miracle for Jesse Ramirez and His Family

Just be careful they don't get a civic award for performing the Feminist Sacrament.
Michael Schiavo, George Felos and George Greer got widespread praise and several professional awards for murdering Terri.
Once upon a time we distinguished between libertarians (fierce defenders of life, liberty and property) and libertines (do as you please, no rules, no authority). Nowadays you can’t guess who is what. For my two cents, a full and sufficient statement of political belief for a libertarian is (or should be), “Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Cor. 3:17 KJV) The goodness of our liberty derives from, and cannot be detached from, the goodness of Him who created us and made us free. Any other kind of liberty is evil.
Put me down for another helpful suggestion.
I also think we could get busy trading federal judges with, oh, Colombia, South America and Saudi Arabia.

Six months before the Iowa presidential caucuses, anti-abortion activists in the Republican Party are trying to adjust to a strikingly different political landscape. For the first time in more than a generation, they face, in former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani of New York, a front-runner for the nomination who supports abortion rights.
"Pro-life" support is divided among several other candidates, including former Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, a relatively recent convert to the cause, and former Senator Fred Thompson of Tennessee. And some strategists and outside analysts are voicing a theory that was once unthinkable in the Republican Party: That a convergence of forces - such as the early primaries in moderate states like California - may have diminished the influence of the anti-abortion movement on the Republican nominating process.
Anti-abortion leaders are increasingly moving to defend the seminal victory they first won in 1980 - the definition of the Republican Party as the "pro-life party" in its platform and its presidential nominees. Key leaders are signing on with the anti-abortion candidates they see as best able to go the distance. And some of those leaders are warning, bluntly, that the abortion issue is fundamental - not something to be finessed
Profound stuff there!
CNSNews.com) - Doctors and patients who have been involved in medical treatments derived from "adult" stem cells say they back federal legislation to promote such research -- because "this stuff works."
They made the comments in support of the Patients First Act of 2007 at a news conference in Washington, D.C. late last week.
The head of an organization that supports research using stem cells from all sources -- including human embryos -- told Cybercast News Service that the bill "isn't worth the paper it's written on."

AURORA -- A lack of women's health services in the region, particularly abortion providers, prompted a full-service Planned Parenthood medical office on Aurora's far northeast side.
Scheduled to open the middle of September, the medical complex will offer reproductive and women's health-care services, with an estimated 10 percent of that coming from abortions.
Thanks narses, also for the ping to above post.
Remember the mammoths, say the clean-cut organisers at the youth camp's mass wedding. "They became extinct because they did not have enough sex. That must not happen to Russia".
Obediently, couples move to a special section of dormitory tents arranged in a heart-shape and called the Love Oasis, where they can start procreating for the motherland.

"Over the last few years, we've realized that virtually every tissue of the adult body has adult stem cells," he said.
Adult stem cells can be collected from bone marrow, amniotic fluid, the placenta, testicular tissue, cord blood and nasal tissue, he said, adding that the cells "are very flexible" when used to treat a number of diseases or injuries.
"After a heart attack, some of the heart tissue is damaged or dead," Prentice stated. "We can now inject these adult-type stem cells into the damaged part of the heart and stimulate repair of that tissue."
How long is the trip to Hell?
They must have been thinking of Steven Seagal. He had a friend, named Emma, I think.
Wife was standing next to him in a line at Orly Airport, Paris a few years back, did not know who he was. He was very friendly and helped carry her bags. He told her he was an actor.
In her autobiography, Margaret Sanger tells us that in 1926 in Silver Lake, New Jersey, she spoke at a Ku Klux Klan rally. Not surprisingly, the made-for-TV movie about Sanger, Choices of the Heart: The Margaret Sanger Story , forgot to mention Maggie's Klan rally speech, but the event has begun to get more attention of late from some commentators.
Rereading Sanger's own account of her Ku Klux Klan speech, one thing really jumped out at me the other day. Here are some of the more relevant passages:
It is my studied opinion that youth do not need any encouragement whatsoever to fool around.
