Delaware says "No" to Killing Brain Damaged Woman
Great news for Lauren Richardson and her father, as he fights for her life! Delaware, the first state, passed a resolution supporting the right to life for this disabled U.S. citizen! This must be quite a blow for health insurance companies that stand to benefit from Americans embracing the idea that people who are sick beyond the expectation of recovery should be STARVED TO DEATH, regardless of whether or not the patients have any say in their death sentences. Stand down organ harvesters! Lauren just may be keeping hers a while longer.
Question: Why does it seem to always be WOMEN who must be able to prove they are in a state of health to avoid being killed for reason of their disabilities (out of compassion, of course)?

Delaware Passes Resolution Supporting Lauren Richardson
The Delaware House of Representatives has passed a resolution in support of protecting the life of Lauren Richardson, who like Terri Schiavo before her, is the subject of a bitter court fight over removing her feeding tube. The resolution states:
This Resolution establishes protections for mentally disabled individuals in the State of Delaware. The impetus for this Resolution comes from the case of Lauren Richardson.
Lauren faces EXTERMINATION FOR IRRELEVANCE DUE TO BRAIN DAMAGE. Congratulations to Delaware House of Representatives for its determination that mental dysfunction should not be an excuse for killing disabled citizens. See Laruen's story at this link: http://lifeforlauren.org/index.html.
