This is a link to a daily Standard article on what happens when an abused young girl falls into the warm and loving hands of the state.

They set her up with adoptive parents that apparently beat her severely. And, when she ended up in the hospital in the proverbial "vegetative state" the state af Massachusetts quickly sought judicial permission to end treatment and kill her via dehydration or lack of oxygen.

Providentially, she seems to be recovering, and plans for her death are now on hold. But what if the courts had moved faster and she had been killed before improvement manifested itself?
