The Right to Life: Protecting One WomanTopics: News
Although much of the media have portrayed Terri Schiavo's plight as a right-to-die, as has also been the characterization by the euthanasia community, I believe that on the contrary, it is all about the right to live and to always err on the side of life, rather than death.
All of us are dying, but to hasten it by disallowing one to partake in the simple substanance afforded all of us as not only a basic human need, but also a human right, is anathema to all who value the sanctity and value of human life. Further, to do so on the basis of heresay evidence, disallowing and devaluing the testimony to the contrary of Terri's parents and friends, can only be described as judicial action with an agenda - by a judge that has sat on the same board of directors of the same hospice with the euthanasia advocate George Felos, Michael Schiavo's attorney, and that placed great weight on the tesimony of a euthanasia-advocate physician, Dr. Ronald Cranford. The person judicating Terri's death can hardly be perceived as unbiased.
I could probably go on indefinately about this but William J. Bennett and Brian T. Kennedy writing on NRO have much to say on this topic of the right to live. Here is what they have to say about it:
