Death Culturists Say Michael Schiavo 'Vindicated'
La Shawn Barber responded to Terri Schiavo's autopsy and the related media reports with the following insightful commentary:
According to Terri Schiavo's autopsy report, she was severely brain-damaged. OK.

For me, the whole tragedy surrounding Terri and the people who wanted her dead didn't hinge on how severely brain-damaged she was. She was alive and wasn't on life support, and her husband's credibility was extremely low, too low to trust his assertion that Terri wanted to die if ever severely brain-damaged. Forget about what you'd want if you were ever in the same condition. Take yourselves out of the equation.
The way they killed her was appalling, and I was angry for a long time afterward. I'm giving you a heads-up. Don't be alarmed or disgusted by the liberal media and liberal bloggers (and some conservatives, too) declaring that Terri's wayward husband is somehow "vindicated" by the autopsy report. The doctor-induced starvation was immoral.
Look at the thing itself, to paraphrase a fictional man-eater paraphrasing Marcus Aurelius. What is it in itself? What is its nature, this culture of death?
It is dark, dank, and putrid. And hungry.
