Why Schiavo Mattered
by

All of those horrible celebrators of death who completely misrepresented the Terry Schiavo case from EVERY angle — moral, legal, legislative — should take a look at this story (Drudge found it) about a man who was supposedly in a coma and an irreversible “persistent vegetative state” for 23 YEARS (!!!!!) while actually conscious all along. This story provides one more example of why it is always wise  to err on the side of human life. Not to trivialize the issue with a cultural reference, but I am always reminded of the line from the Shelley Winters character in The Poseidon Adventure as she lay dying in Gene Hackman’s arms after saving him from drowning. “Life matters,” she said. Yes, life matters. Yes, it does. And what Ramesh Ponnuru rightly called “The Party of Death” consistently violates that basic insight. In doing do, the Party of Death is morally monstrous.
