Today a baby in North Texas is receiving life-sustaining nourishment and medical care in a hospital. She is alive and growing and safe.
Until tomorrow when a judge has decreed that she and her medically fragile mother will be left to die.
The minimum requirement for you to retain your humanity is for you to think for one minute about the actual mechanism of death for that mother and child.
Will they starve?
And would you want to face their fate?
I do not have to search the annals of history to know what Hippocrates would say about withholding medical treatment in order to kill.
Our pragmatism has rendered us savages, trading our souls for money.
