BlogsForTerri being interviewed on BBC Radio this afternoonTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
To those who may not know already, Tim of ProLifeBlogs and Hyscience co-founded BlogsforTerri. It quickly became an overnight success due to the overwhelming interest in Terri Schiavo and the overwhelming and enthusiastic support of several hundred highly talented and hard working Bloggers that believe that every human life has value and should be treasured. There are now 7 bloggers that do the posting for BlogsForTerri. There are now almost 300 blogs from all over the world that make up the BlogsForTerri group. That brings us to this morning.
Apparently there is as much or more interest in Europe regarding Terri's plight, as there is in the US. I was interviewed on the phone this morning by BBC Radio and will be interviewed live about 5 PM ET this afternoon. Tim will most likely be interviewed on BBC News later this evening - we are dividing up our time committments. It seems that they sense a world-wide interest in Terri's case, and we were asked this morning what we thought to be the driving force.
My answer was that many felt the need for error to always be on the side of life, that Terri's body is(was) healthy, and to deprive a living person mechanical or artificial life support was one thing, but to deny not only her means of obtaining nutrition through a feeding tube - then go beyond that to deny a person the right to receive food and water by mouth, that was a bridge too far.
I also spoke of the bi-partisan nature of BlogsForTerri, and how we support any politician, Democratic and Republican alike, that supports life. And, on the contrary, those that don't, Democrats and Republicans alike, upon them we will turn the same effort we have used to save Terri - to end the political career of those that have turned their backs on life.
