Bloggers March as Mae Flees Hospice Death CampTopics: News
From the pages of Life Matters! . . .
Just received telephone call (3:00 pm ET) from Ken Mullinax, nephew of Mae [Magouirk], followed by this e-mail:
Thanks to the support of all friends of Terri, my aunt Mae Magouirk has been air-lifted to the University of Alabama-Birmingham Medical Center...and [is] receiving IV fluids, nourishment and some of the finest medical care available in the United States! Praise be the name of the Lord God...
It is not over yet--the opposition is still trying to get her back to the hospice--so keep fighting, bloggers and readers!
Ken, it looks like Cousin Beth may be suffering from "Michael Schiavo syndrome," whose chief symptom is a persistent urge to cause a family member to die prematurely.
Meanwhile--while it is we who salute you--not everyone shares your kind and generous assessment of our efforts, as witness the following rant that CURE is honored to have played its part in engendering:
Today a bunch of rightie bloggers are worked up over the case of a Georgia woman who they say is neither terminal nor comatose but is being deprived of care by a grandaughter who, naturally will inherit a bunch of money when Granny dies. In other words, they've found their new Terri Schiavo. [Editor's Note: They're not hard to find, just visit almost any hospice and most hospitals and nursing homes.]
Adidas, no doubt. Pass the salt! And remember, as Richard reminds us, keep fighting!
