Dr. Frist Plays Politics with Schiavo Case

From an MSNBC story.....

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, who pushed the Senate to pass legislation intended to save Schiavo’s life, has presidential ambitions and has already visited New Hampshire, where the first GOP primary will be held in 2008....

Frist issued a press release denying any political motive.

Referring to a memorandum reportedly passed around to Republican senators that called the Schiavo case “a great political issue" which could appeal to Christian conservative voters, Frist said, “I have never seen the memo and “I condemn the content of the memo.

Senator Frist, if you've never seen the memo, how can you condemn it???

Imagine, a physician playing politics with end-of-life issues. Does it come lower for a medical professional?
