Where are all the Celebrity Musicians Now?

This is ridiculous. Here's the caption from this AP photo.

Joshua Heldreth (front) is arrested by police officers for trespassing in Pinellas Park, Florida, March 25, 2005. The young protester attempted to take a glass of water into the Woodside Hospice for the brain-damaged Terri Schiavo, who completed a week without food or water, sliding closer to death despite a frenetic legal offensive by her parents and efforts by the U.S. Congress and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to intervene.

A 10-year-old boy was arrested for trying to give a dying woman a glass of water. The eyes of the world are on us right now.  God help our nation.

Even as you have given to the least of these...

The story of Terri Shiavo shows what priorities some people have.
Let's differentiate between the most basic necessities of life (air, food and water) and 'heroic measures' to override death. Having machines indefinitely keep the heart or lungs going when there is no medical possibility of that person living in terminal or degenerative cases is far different from simply providing nutrition, even by means of a tube.

The point is, she's not on a heart monitor or an artificial lung. She's "all natural". She's not on life support, at all.

*correction: She IS on a heart monitor...all that does is monitor the condition of her heart. However, she has nothing else pumping her own blood but her heart. That's what i meant to say

Josh Heldreth is the son of two 'professional' anti-abortion protesters. His father, Howard Scott Heldreth, is a registered sex offender convicted of rape and kidnapping.


Furthermore, using children to make one's point is unethical. You might want to be more selective in who you praise.

Welcome to the site.

First of all, a ten-year-old boy being arrested for trying to give a woman water is absurd, no matter what. Secondly, I have no problem with abortion protestors (peaceful ones); I'm pro-life.
Thirdly, the father turned his life around after he accepted Jesus Christ as Savior. Where's your "compassion and tolerance" here?

And finally, don't lecture me about using children to make a point. The left is by far the most guilty of this crime.
