Woman With Brain Injury! Schiavo-Type Alert! Where's Chet? Where's The House Republicans?

It's always seemed to me to be the height of hypocrisy, not to mention a grave misuse of congressional power, for the House to have gone through the Teri Schiavo circus and passed a bill to keep her alive.. while in Texas, there's a law that allows hospitals to cut off care when families want to keep the patient alive. At the same time that Chet Edwards was hopping a plane in the middle of the night to vote with the Republicans about Schiavo last year,  a family was struggling to keep their father alive and a Houston area hospital was trying to cut off his care.

Well, here's another example.

 The children of a North Texas woman with a severe brain injury are fighting to keep her alive, after a Carrollton hospital ruled it would discontinue life-saving treatments.

And the family's attorneys are waging a legal battle to prove that a Texas statute allowing hospitals to end treatment against the family's will is unconstitutional.

Question: If life is so dang important to these Republican types, then why aren't they all burning up the House floor to pass a bill for each and every person in this country who has a life and death dilemma? Surely it wasn't just a political stunt! Say it ain't So!
