A good friend

Today, a man in Italy woke up from a two-year coma and REMEMERED EVERYTHING.

CATANIA, October 6, 2005 ( - When Salvatore Crisafulli, 38, awoke Monday from a two-year long coma, his first word, according to his mother, was “Mamma.” Crisafulli was declared “nearly dead” by doctors after a serious auto accident that left him unresponsive.

His physicians, guided by modern bioethics movement that frequently rates personal autonomy above the value of life, gave up treating him and his family became his primary caregivers.

Crisafulli, a father of four, told Italian media through his brother, that he had heard and understood everything going on around him for two years and had been unable to respond. “I cried in desperation," he said.

The liberals will defend starving a person to death as the next modern thing. This is the proper direction for society to move. It's a natural evolution in our growth of mankind. Since the "rest of the world" allowed the killing of disabled people and allowed mercy killing 10 years ago, the United States is BEHIND in our civil rights agenda.

But if you stand against killing people, then you have a new ally and friend in the fight- the country of Italy. There are lots of people who are against the

Crisafulli’s case highlights a decision – made the same day Crisafulli “woke up,” – by the Italian National Bioethics Committee to recommend that the state must make it mandatory that such patients not be starved or dehydrated to death as in the US court-ordered death of Terri Schiavo earlier this year. The Italian committee holds an advisory position to government equivalent to that of the President’s Council on Bioethics in the US.

This is really great news for all pro-life people. Sometimes we lose hope when our government and media goes astray. Other people in nations around the world are continuing the same fight we lost. They haven't given up and neither will I.
