Pravda: Terri is Gone, I hope liberals are happyTopics: Commentary
I found this article by Steve Darnell in the Russian online publication, PRAVDA.Ru. Let it not be said that the life and death of Terri Schiavo hasn't affected the entire world. Although this article is particularly critical of the Democratic party, let's remember that there were a number of Republicans that also failed Terri and supported the culture of death. Our job is to make sure that regardless of one's political affiliation, if they don't support the sanctity and importance of every life, then we need to see to it that they don't get a second opportunity to support the culture of death.
In one corner, the good: Republicans and Pro-Life Christian conservatives fighting an impossible uphill battle to save Terri's life. In the other corner, the evil: Democrats and other liberal Bush hating groups, gleefully wringing their hands together like Dr. Jack Kevorkian, eagerly awaiting Schiavo's death.
In the middle of this life and death battle stood the corrupt referee: The Judicial Branch of our government, whose ruling ultimately sealed Terri's fate and will no doubt change the outcome of all future life or death battles of this kind.
(...) At least some good has come out of all this. Terri Schiavo's death has proven one thing: The Democrat Party is the party of death. From abortion rights, to right for life battles, liberals always seem to be on the side of death, even though they claim to be the protector of the people.
On the matter of Steve Darnell's comment about "the party of death," let's not forget that in reality the "party" of death, is not just a single political party but rather a culture - comprised of certain liberal Republicans and certain liberal Democrats, but not all liberal Republicans and Democrats. Let's remember that liberals from both parties joined with conservatives to fight for Terri Schiavo's right to live.
So we need to continue to seek common ground between us and join together, liberals and conservatives from both major parties, in a joint effort to beat back the previously emerging culture of death in America.
