Andrea Clark situation: Problems again

Please keep them in your prayers. It appears the place that was going to take her may not have the ability to provide the care. She now has, we hope, until Tuesday to get this resolved.


Here is a quote from an article that just shows the total disrespect for life:

Andrea's attending physician, Dr. Ronald Giveon, made the decision to remove Andrea from life support and then left for vacation.

Order a death then take a holiday.

Here are updates:

(link) Lone Star Times
(link) Pro-Life Blogs

But the mainstream media has picked up the story to a degree (link)

Let us Pray and do everything else we can. Do not lose faith. Do not lose Hope.

This list of Contacts is from here (link)

PLEASE make some calls/send some emails; you may save a life.

Thank you, David! If they think people are going to back off, they're wrong.
