Every Physician Should Read...

This article by Father Robert Johansen, probably the most well-reasoned, and damning, discussion of the planned starvation of Terri Schiavo. There is nothing I can add, except my strongest recommendations to read this important expose. This is a bastardization of the idea of "death with dignity." It is, quite simply, murder sanctioned by the state.

As Hugh Hewitt has aptly stated, if the swift applcation of a lethal injection in an execution is felt by the left to be cruel and unusual punishment, what words are left that describe forced starvation?
