The Right to Life: Protecting One WomanTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
I wrote this post earlier today and forgot to post it here at Hyscience at the same time I posted it at BlogsForTerri. Better late than never.
Although much of the media have portrayed Terri Schiavo's plight as a right-to-die, as has also been the characterization by the euthanasia community, I believe that on the contrary, it is all about the right to live and to always err on the side of life, rather than death.
All of us are dying, but to hasten it by disallowing one to partake in the simple substanance afforded all of us as not only a basic human need, but also a human right, is anathema to all who value the sanctity and value of human life. Further, to do so on the basis of heresay evidence, disallowing and devaluing the testimony to the contrary of Terri's parents and friends, can only be described as judicial action with an agenda - by a judge that has sat on the same board of directors of the same hospice with the euthanasia advocate George Felos, Michael Schiavo's attorney, and that placed great weight on the tesimony of a euthanasia-advocate physician, Dr. Ronald Cranford. The person judicating Terri's death can hardly be perceived as unbiased.
I could probably go on indefinately about this but William J. Bennett and Brian T. Kennedy writing on NRO have much to say on this topic of the right to live. Here is what they have to say about it:

United States, what have we become? Is this great
country going to kill a young girl? On hear say
from a man, and I use the word man losely.Marriage (the promise to GOD) to love and honor till death do us part. Are we going to teach are young ones, that if the going gets rough kill em and go on. She is not a throw away piece of paper, Are we not killing enough with abortion? This is wrong,wrong,wrong. If her huspand needs to go on with his life grant him a legal divorce and put the tube back in. Would'nt that be more humane. they talk about legal issues. What about the hear say that she said she did'nt want to be left on life support. Is there legal papers stateing this? To the judge.We all will bow down to the real JUDGE are you ready?
Do you feel good about your decision?
To the man that wants out. You too will bow down to the ALL MIGHTY! be prepared.
To Terri. Words cannot express my heartache and shame that are country has done this. Are prayers goes out to your family.
To the family Don't give up!

Not to be crass...............but do you suppose FOX News will instruct Sean Hannity to strike a deal with the Schindlers for the remains of Terri for the purpose of actually taking the body to the Senate floor and let "Captain Bill" finally make his "expert" analysis on this matter so he could at least say."I told you so"?I can see it now,minion Hannity and Fox crew circumvent CSpan and shut em down so they can have the "Exclusive" rights on the autopsy.Not without senator Frists exhorbitant fee paid upfront by medicaire cuts first though.HYPOCRITS,each and all........The "Republican" party has died by its own hand.Good riddance
