Terri's Fight was a KeyTopics: Euthanasia
We were repeatedly told that there was no culture of death agenda involved in the fight for Terri Schiavo's life. Yet, those claiming victory are calling her death a key to their vision for the future.
"By 2040, it may be that only a rump of hard-core, know-nothing religious fundamentalists will defend the view that every human life, from conception to death, is sacrosanct," says Princeton University's defender of infanticide.

Singer sees 2005's battle over the life of Terri Schiavo as a key to this changing ethic.
