As the US government voted for new legislation to replace the feeding tube of Mrs Terri Schiavo (read about it here) who is in a vegetative state, President Bush said, “In cases like this one, where there are serious questions and substantial doubts, our society, our laws, and our courts should have a presumption in favour of life.”

Odd that the same views did not extend to the Afghan and Iraqi people killed in his onslaught to grab their resources, or the victims of the USA’s murderous gun laws.

Perhaps this ethic only is extended only to individuals suffering brain damage by people sufficiently soft in the head to believe this bollocks.
