Jack Sisson's Life Ethics Blog

We must find new ways through many ethical issues, especially regarding bioethics, medical ethics, and criminal justice. Jack Sisson's 'Life Ethics' blog focuses on numerous areas of concern, including the philosophical and ethical dilemmas surrounding stem-cell research, abortion, medical research, and health care.

I can't believe I'm writing about Terri Schiavo again. I apologize. But all of the hoopla about Michael Schiavo's book and the Schindlers' book coming out this week makes revisiting the case inevitable.

One thing I don't understand is how the right-to-life groups still hold Terri Schiavo up as a banner of sorts to promote their end-of-life agenda. No one expressed one iota of embarrassment when the autopsy proved Terri had long since departed this realm, leaving a scant half of her brain behind. They instead held firm that Terri's machine-supported body should have been allowed to lie in that hospital bed indefinitely. Where is the right-to-life logic in this? What life? No brain activity and a body kept barely alive by artificial means? This is what they continue to fight for? And what the Schindlers continue to castigate Michael Schiavo for? He alone had enough compassion and respect for Terri (not to mention good sense) to fight for her right to die with whatever dignity the media circus had left her.

And what of Jeb and the Florida legislature, and W and theUnited States Congress? What of Bill Frist who, based on a couple of minutes of videotape, declared, "She certainly seems to respond to visual stimuli,"? Answer: he's running for President. God bless America.
