So this is your compassion and your "culture of life"?

This has gotten way, way, way too out of control. Other patient's at Schavio's hospice center have now lost the chance to say good bye to their loved ones because of the circus of right-to-life freaks outside of her hospice. I guess having compassion for other people doesn't apply in all situations, or for all people. What are these compassionate conservative "culture of life" people going to do next? Treat hospice facilities like Planned Parenthood clinics? And by the way, I saw the best illustation of the people that are part of the protest at the hospice today on the news. A family of 11 children. 11 children!! The 8 youngest ones were brought to witness the circus outside the hospice so, as their father explained "they would know what courts do [murder] so that they can grow up and change it." Nice. Hopefully I'll be teaching in Canada at that point. The only nice thing about the news today is that Bush's approval rating is at an all-time low. Its slipped 7 points in the past month! Well, wait. I don't know if that is good news. My synical side remembers the last time Bush's approval rating slipped so low... Is it time for a big distraction?
