NATURAL CONSERVATIVES:

Blacks more likely to want end-of-life intervention (Anne Harding, 12/07/06, Reuters Health)

Blacks are more likely than whites to want life-sustaining care at the end of life for an incurable illness or a serious physical or mental disability, a new study shows.

While more than half of black individuals surveyed said they would want life support if they had a chronic condition and were brain dead, just 11 percent of whites would want this intervention. Nearly three quarters of blacks said they would want life-sustaining care if they were terminally ill and had senile dementia, compared with 22.2 percent of whites.


Whereas Democrats want them dead.

Well, yes, but they still want them to vote.

Since when has death been a bar to black urban voting?
