    What about the doctors and nurses.  The people who knew but didn't act?  What about them?  The Catholic Church is a religious organization (read: crazy and unaccountable) several steps removed from this process.  The moral weight always falls on those who were in a position to act.  Those are her killers.

      Your first duty is to the patient in front of you.

    •  I think it's unforgivable that they did nothing. (0+ / 0-)

      What I read was that the law was so unclear, they were more afraid of getting in trouble for aborting the fetus than for letting her die. I don't understand how doctors can live with those laws.
      (Of course, I was furious with our own military doctors who allowed themselves to be pressured by the military hierarchy into under-diagnosing PTSD -- I thought the medical groups, particularly the American Psychiatric Association, should have taken action. My husband, a shrink, actually wrote a letter to colleagues about this but was ignored).

      While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
