    What ever happened to the Hippocratic oath. Are those who appose helping this poor family the same
    ghouls that tried to cover for the Doctor in Phila while he ran a abortion butcher shop? The thing that really sickens me is the powers that be will not drop the third world regulations that seem to begin at the top of our government and stand in the way of a humane decision.
    SO WHATS NEW??? 4 ADULTS NEEDLESSLY DIE IN BENGAZI, THOUSANDS DIE IN SYRIA, IN THE STREETS IF IRAN DURING THEIR LATEST ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE FREEDOM AND OUR GOVERNMENT MAKES NO ATTEMPT TO HELP!! ARE YOU SURPRISED???????????
