Apparently, in emergencies (such as the precious opportunity to disparage a Republican), ALL Lives become worthwhile.
I mean, whatever happened to “just a clump of cells” or Obama’s famous response about how his infamous health insurance would affect unimportant people.
“Look, the first thing for all of us to understand is that we actually have some — some choices to make about how we want to deal with our own end-of-life care…we as a culture and as a society [can start] to make better decisions…at least we can let doctors know and your mom know that, you know what? Maybe this isn’t going to help. Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller.”
Funny. You might almost think that it wasn’t all about the principles, but about the potential for political advantage.
