On Terri Shiavo

I'm all for living wills and durable powers of attorney for such incapacitation as being stuck on a breather unable to communicate. I think the phrase "quality of life" is going to be used too much as an excuse to kill those that cannot make the choice for themselves. The Shiavo case seems to be one of a husband using the courts to put his crippled wife to death in lieu of divorcing her and turning her over to the parents care. The detail of him not saying anything about her wishing to not live in such a state until after he got a huge amount of cash in order to CARE FOR HER is a HUGE red flag. That he hired a Newage kook pro-death attorney who channels other severly crippled persons is another. National Review has a good editorial on it.
