Now why does this promise by 4 repub/teatrolls sound hollow? If they went forward touting beliefs that the rule should be amended to allow for humane and compassionate end-of-life based on a diagnosis of brain death, a patient's prior wishes, and the decision of close family, these 4 would incur the loud and rabid condemnation of their voting base, their repub/teatroll ultra-conservative right-of-right radically religious backers. Keeping a woman "alive" to incubate a damaged fetus is horrible.
