Morton Kondracke Shows Sense on Terri Schiavo

      Morton Kondracke writes a sensitive, honest post about Terri Schiavo.  (Hat Tip: RealClearPolitics for March 28th)

      First, he says, we should determine what the medical facts are.  For that, a PET scan would be needed.

      Second, if the PET showed Terri was not in a PVS, turn her over to her parents for therapy.  If she is in a PVS, let Michael kill her.

      As it happens, I disagree with Kondracke.  Given the lack of what I think is clear and compelling evidence, much less evidence beyond a reasonable doubt, I think Terri should live.  And even if she dies, she shouldn't die of thirst, unless she's deeply sedated first.

      But the post is definitely worth reading, because it makes a clear, honest, thoughtful argument for its position.  It illustrates the way we ought to be debating these matters.  Go read it, please.

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
