Emilio's mother, Catarina Gonzales, on the other hand, is fighting to keep her son on the ventilator, allowing him to die "naturally, the way God intended."

Am I the only person that reads that and thinks "kept on a ventilator" and "naturally die" shouldn't be in the same fucking sentence!? You want him to die naturally the "way God intended" then take him off the fucking ventilator and see how long he lasts. SCIENCE is keeping him alive, not "God".

My first question is: Is she illegal?

My second is: When her child passes on can we ship her back to Mexico?

Other Comments: She's an idiot who doesn't care about her child. If she did, she would have let the child go and we wouldn't be hearing about this.

People like that piss me off too. When E. was born, we had insurance and ended up paying about $1500.00 out of pocket, in addition to the hundreds of dollars we pay each month in premiums for the privilege of having said insurance. And then this woman, with no insurance, chooses to "fight" for her child when there is no chance of a recovery. You're right-- science is keeping that baby alive.

Stupid people suck. And raise my insurance rates, which also sucks.
