When we say we value life, you have to understand we don't mean actual people with functioning brains...

What's a Press Corps to Do?: "The case... raises complex issues. Yet in instances like this one, where there are serious questions and substantial doubts, our society, our laws, and our courts should have a presumption in favor of life. Those who live at the mercy of others deserve our special care and concern. It should be our goal as a nation to build a culture of life, where all Americans are valued, welcomed, and protected -- and that culture of life must extend to individuals with disabilities."
Could this possibly be a statement from Bush regarding a death penalty case, possibly one involving a retarded defendant?

Of course not! Get your priorities straight.. if that were the case the policy might actually do some good.

Instead it's about the body of what was once a person known as Terry Schiavo, a brain-dead husk kept alive by modern science and effectively held hostage by her deranged parents for the past fifteen years! They're waiting for her to 'wake up' despite the lack of higher brain functions.

But then I guess their attitude towards their child isn't all that different from Bush's regarding the rest of us: as microcephalic bovine creatures.
