Selective Compassion

In the tragic wake of Hurricane Katrina, the public is being asked to show mercy to the needy, whatever it costs. But what about others of our fellow citizens who also need merciful attention but are being considered unworthy of any financial investment?

Here's the story of how Missouri Medicaid is "pulling the plug" on breathing machines, feeding tubes, crutches, cushions for people suffering bedsores, and more.

True compassion is consistent, sacrificial and no respecter of persons. C'mon, Missouri; show some heart.
