THE TERRI SCHIAVO CASE - DeLay's Own Tragic Crossroads

This article shows the hypocrisy of the far right-wingers. If Schiavo's husband's act is an act of barbarism, then what would you call Delay's family act in refusing medical care for their father? This is a prime example why people shouldn't allow others to decide what is a moral issue for them. Oftentimes, those who scream the loudest, have skeletons in the closet. These types of people can't be trusted. If you sit back, watch, and listen - the true intentions of others will unfold.

DeLay is among the strongest advocates of keeping the woman, who doctors say has been in a persistent vegetative state for 15 years, connected to her feeding tube. DeLay has denounced Schiavo's husband, as well as judges, for committing what he calls "an act of barbarism" in removing the tube.

In 1988, however, there was no such fiery rhetoric as the congressman quietly joined the sad family consensus to let his father die. "There was no point to even really talking about it," Maxine DeLay, the congressman's 81-year-old widowed mother, recalled in an interview last week. "There was no way [Charles] wanted to live like that. Tom knew — we all knew — his father wouldn't have wanted to live that way."Doctors advised that he would "basically be a vegetable," said the congressman's aunt, JoAnne DeLay.
