(Life Site) An eleven year-old girl who was the victim of severe child abuse at the hands of her adoptive Aunt and her husband is the next subject of a Terri Schiavo-type euthanasia debate. Massachusetts officials, who now have custody of the girl, who has been living in what doctors claim is a vegetative state, say she should be removed from life support.
Haleigh Poutre was taken to the hospital three months ago after suffering broken teeth, a swollen face, and burns on her chest. She was extremely thin from not eating, she had cuts and sores all over her body and a temperature of just 81 degrees.
It is encouraging to see that in the best interests of society the state has decided to terminate a life that was violently assaulted as such a life lacks the attention needed to be appreciated as a human being (Editor's note: sarcastic and enraged). It is ironic that the child abuser is seeking to spare the child while the state is attempting to end her life, although this should not come as a surprise, especially in this day and age.
(Life Site) In Haliegh's case, Strickland does not have legal custody of her because he never adopted the girl, so the courts have given him no legal standing. But he will ask the Massachusetts high court to recognize him as the de facto father, which the Juvenile judge denied. [...]
John Egan, his attorney, told the Times that Haleigh called Strickland "Daddy" and he helped raise her. He says the girl's Catholic faith may also have made her opposed to euthanizing her.
Haleigh's birth mother, Allison Avrett, who lost custody of her daughter at age 4 over child abuse, wants life support to be removed.
Apparently her mother, whose lack of affection is probably evidence of how much she cares, has (along with her other family members) contributed towards the torment of this 11 year old girl who was needlessly beaten to a pulp. Although custody has been rightfully taken away from all offenders, the state should allow the child to be cared for by a willing third party, (such as a church) instead of merely shuffling Haleigh Poutre off the "cliff of life."
Editor's note: Although everyone is probably busy this holiday season, perhaps the blogosphere could muster the support to save little Haleigh's life this Christmas season. Any takers?

JESUS CHRIST HAS REMOVED HIS BLESSING FROM AMERICA BECAUSE OF THE AMERINAZIS. THIS HAPPENS WHEN A COUNTRY BECOMES SO THOROUGHLY CORRUPT THAT IT BEGINS VIOLATING THE LORD'S LAWS FLAGRANTLY. AMERICA'S LAST HALF DOZEN WARS HAVE BEEN WAGED PRIMARILY TO BOOST A PRESIDENT'S APPROVAL RATINGS. THOSE ARE UNJUST WARS, AND EVERYBODY KILLED IN THEM IS A MURDER VICTIM. PLUS, LOOK AT WHAT A DEN OF THIEVES THE AMERICAN MARKETPLACE HAS BECOME. AMERICA IS SOON TO BE TOPPLED, MUCH THE SAME AS THE FIRST NAZI NATION, GERMANY, WAS WHEN THEY WENT TOO FAR. MARK MY WORDS. http://www.mixposure.com/song.php?songid=14027.
