this is Texas,  suing a hospital is limited to $250.000  'tort refom'
this is Amurika,  since he is not a corporation he cannot declare bankrupsy.

he needs to wait until after dark, claim the hospital robbed him, pursue it and shoot it.

'cause that IS legal in Texas.

This sets a rather scary precedent, seeing there are so many other brain-dead people in Texas.

TuteTibiImperes: Apparently brain activity makes a difference in both how someone's body holds up and on the development of a fetus inside of it.


But enough about the Palins.

bigbobowski: it's funny that there are a group of people in this country who only care that you are born, don't give a living sh*t about your welfare while your alive, and then won't even grant you a dignified death.

As with the last thread about this, I'll point out this one in bold.

This was not following the law of the state of Texas.  In Texas, a brain dead person is legally dead and the rules regarding preserving the life of a comatose mother so her fetus can come to term does not apply.  Indeed, her body was a decaying corpse.  The hospital chose this ghoulish course of action as a crusade by a zealous anti-abortion man who is the General Counsel of the hospital.

Last week the judge drawing the case out recused herself when it became known that her campaign treasurer was the same man.

Holy shiat, you're right. How was this not published from the rooftops?

This is one of the most horrific stories I've read in a long time and finding out about the Judge's financial ties was the icing on this stinking, goddamn festering urinal cake of a situation.
That man has been tortured and those heartless cocksuckers will most likely try to bankrupt him to pay for this.
The entire situation is barbaric.

Because when you think about bankruptcy, judicial corruption, and conniving hospital administrators, the first image that comes to mind is of an illiterate, filth-caked savage bludgeoning a nun to death with the leg of the horse he just raped.

Nah.
