Ive always said that we treat our family pets better then our parents. We the loved family dog gets cancer and in alot of pain we take them to be put to sleep. Yet when a parent get riddled with pain from some killing illness we place them in a room hooked up to hoses, wires and machines to extend there pain and suffering out as long as possible.

Something is very wrong here.

We ALL know what the 'something is very wrong here' is..

its the religious right fundies that 'think' they rule everyone else's lives..

So many people I have talked to lately, even your garden variety christians think that this should be made legal and encouraged..

The 'religious reich' is dying faster than they 'think'..

Ya here that kensey, wayne et al?
