Frist Misdiagnosed Schiavo

Bill Frist, continues to be plagued by his Senate Floor misdiagnosis of Terri Schiavo. He, of course, denies that he actually diagnosed her. But he told us, at the height of the debate, that he was "speaking more as a physician than as a U.S. senator ... There seems to be insufficient information to conclude that Terri Schiavo is in a persistent vegetative state," Frist continued, "I don't see any justification in removing hydration and nutrition."

Now, of course, Dr. Frist is bearing false witness: "In a Thursday appearance on ABC's Good Morning America, Frist insisted: 'I raised the question, 'Is she in a persistent vegetative state or not?' I never made the diagnosis, never said that she was not.'" Of course you didn't, Dr. Frist. Must have been the God complex kicking in.
