    I guess we'll find out if all religions are equal under the law.

    Are the parents paying for the kid's care? Not that it matters in a moral sense, but if they are, then the hospital really doesn't have the right to ask a court for permission to disconnect the life support. Can they move the kid to a nursing home? I'm fairly certain that there are nursing homes run by and for orthodox jews.

    Based on this comment I figured the kid was a Muslim.

    Unfortunately, he's Jewish, and therefore, like Christians, not entitled to special treatment.

    Poor kid :(

    That was the first question that popped in my head.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    I looked at the hospital's site. They have a whole page on how you can pay for your care. It ain't free, thats for sure. Been there six months already. Insurance probably stopped a while back. Poor kid is right. Thats a helluva way to go for anyone much less a kid. :(
