The Source of America’s Greatness

If someone is able […]

Claim: Jesse Ramirez Case Unlike Terri Schiavo’s

By Carrie K. Hutchens I was reading ABC News’, “Pulling the Plug: Ethicists Debate Ramirez Case“, by Dan Childs, ABC News Medical Unit (June 28, 2007) and found it interesting how the defense is still up.
