The New Moral Clarity: Part II

Products Liability Lawsuits, End of Life Decisions are OK if you're Tom Delay

Great article in the Los Angeles Times about a similar end of life situation involving Tom Delay and his father. The elder Delay was injured in a freak accident. Was brain dead, and did not have a living will. Fortunately the family agreed on the out come (Randall Terry must have been busy with his revolution that week). But why should Mr. Delay and his family get to decide this matter in private, through the proper legal channels when Mr. Schiavo, Terri's legal gaurdian, must surrender his rights (As determined by almost every court in the universe at this point) to the will of a vocal minority?

What makes it worse to is that the Delays filed several products liability lawsuits against companies they thought were responsible for his fathers injuries. Mr. Delay is one of the lead proponents of limiting vitcims rights to sue companies and doctors in such cases.,0,5710023.story?coll=la-home-headlines
