Is life important?

Would you care for Michael Schiavo’s attitude on the involvement of congress in this case?

“I’m outraged, and I think that every American in this country should also be outraged that this government is trampling all over a personal family matter that has been adjudicated in the courts for seven years. I think that the Congress has more important things to discuss.”

More important things to discuss? He wants to end his wife’s life, keep her from receiving *any* therapy or any hope of recovery from future medical advances. Ending her life is irrevocable, and he clearly shows how very wrong his priorities are in this comment. Congress is discussing a matter that, if ignored, will mean a permanent loss to the nation. I’m all for Social Security reform. I’m all for an easier tax burden. When it comes down it, though, victories with financial reforms will mean very little if an innocent women has been allowed to die, her plight ignored. No one thinks that the antebellum Congress would have been discussing unimportant matters while discussing slavery, yet blacks back then were supposed to have nothing to contribute to the “cultured” world.

Yes, her death would be our loss. Letting a woman die like this, with no real representation (do we really wish to trust her husband when he stands to gain so much by her death?) can only mean a regression and an injury to our “culture of life.”

Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee. So it will, if she dies.
