Schiavo Redux: At Ease, Soldier

Reports are going around on the internet about an elderly Lagrange, Georgia woman who is being starved to death by her family despite the fact that she is not terminally ill, or in any kind of vegetative state. I spoke to Pam Shivers of Georgia Right to Life and she informed me that a court order has restored the woman's food and water. Right to Life is monitoring the case and, for now, the call to arms isn't necessary.

Given the quick reaction, though, heaven help the next person who decides to get rid of a relative a la Terri Schiavo.
