As many as her PR team wants, evidently. Or until a cuter or younger little girl with an even better PR team comes along.

That's the new norm in the organ program, right?

Poor thing, going through all that unnecessary surgery over and over, when it can't do more than give her a couple more months. It's obscene.

Gee, I wonder why PHYSICIANS have such strict criteria for recipients? Maybe because they know what they are talking about.

Liberals are against saving a little girl's life?

Harrier isn't surprised.

The Democrats are the pro-death party, after all.

You think?

It would be unheard of for doctors to know more about transplants than a judge.

Liberals are against judges making medical decisions, and over ruling medical professionals who put the guidelines in place.

Did the judges tell women that they had to have an abortion?

Nope, they said that the decision was up to a woman and her doctor.

No, liberals are against the Conservatives' belief that government and not doctors should make medical decisions.
