This is of interest to folks who have been following the Terri Schiavo case: unless a court intervenes, Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube will be removed today. (So far – as of 10am Florida time – there has not been a court intervention – although there was a false report of a court intervention, so that’s created some confusion.)
Do I want Schiavo to die? No, but to me the question is nonsensical, because I’m convinced she died 15 years ago. Not everyone agrees with me, of course. The pro-life blogs are making a final (or not?) push to try and save Terri’s “life” by placing an ad in the St. Petersburg Times.
As always, Abstract Appeal is the blog with the best information on this case (especially for legal matters). The medical blog RangelMD also has an excellent series on the medical and ethical issues involved.
Also of interest is this Ragged Edge point-counterpoint feature (it’s actually a couple of years old), debating whether or not Schiavo’s cause should be a concern of the disabled rights community.
