Terri Schiavo

Posted by on March 18, 2005

UPDATE: Normally I update at the bottom but SingleMind, as usual, has done a much better job of summing up how I feel about this.

I’m more than alittle irritated about the fiasco going on in Florida. For along time I’ve watched this drama from afar without so much as a meaningful comment to others who shared their thoughts with me. Over the past couple weeks my attention has been drawn more to this and the more I think about it the angrier I get. At myself for not being more outspoken before. At Terri’s husband for being a murderous thug. At the so called “judicial system” in Florida and now at my representation in DC.

Peggy Noonan’s piece talks about the political fallout for Republicans if they don’t do something to stop Terri’s murder. Andrew McCarthy’s piece is far less political and really hits the nail on the head:

The right of the innocent to live isn’t contingent on the good will of governments and courts. — It derives from a higher law, as does the obligation to defend it.

We all have much to lose here and very little to gain by sitting on our hands and watching this woman starve to death. We can rant and scream about the legal situation and bitch and moan about the stunning lack of competence in our federal leadership but this situation is quickly spinning beyond those realms. What we are watching in Florida is on the same par as this, this, and this.

Prayers for Terri and her family.

    You know it’s pretty serious when Peggy Noonan is coming down on our side in this matter.

    Keep in mind that–in spite of her otherwise OUTSTANDING record as a conservative speechwriter and pundit–she is pro-choice on abortion.

    For her to side with Terry’s parents on this case is very monumental.

  2. SingleMind Says:

    Actually, I am familiar with the Tehran Vampire case.

    The Terry Schiavo case is far worse: at least the Tehran vampire received due process before the law. We can call his execution method barbaric, but he did receive meaningful due process.

    That’s far more than we can say for Terry Schiavo.
