MY DAUGHTER AND I were discussing the Texas law Pres. Bush signed when he was governor there: the one that allows hospitals to end life support for patients against the family's wishes if the patient's doctor decides there is no hope of recovery, and after the doctor has asked an ethics committee for permission, asked a court to review the case (the court can refuse to do so), and given the patient's family 10 days to find another health care facility that will agree to take on a patient that another hospital has decided is a hopeless case.

My daughter said, "I guess you have to pay to be a member of Bush's culture of life."
