The Sad Case Of Andrea Clarke

Right Wing News has an item picked up from the Democratic Underground about Andrea Clarke who is at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital in Houston, TX, and in 10 days they are going to discontinue her respirator and dialysis and let her die. They say this is not a Terry Schiavo case; not anything like it. Andrea, when she is not medicated into unconsciousness (and even when she is, and the medication has worn off to some degree) is aware and cognizant. She has suffered no brain damage to the parts of her brain responsible for thought and reason, or speech. She even has insurance, although there is speculation this is about insurance costs
