Contrary Views

United Methodist pastor Donald Sensing of One Hand Clapping has a rational view of the Schiavo perspective.

I simply do not have his faith in our Judicial System, but I do appreciate his rational discussion (even if he does try to steal a base in his description of us "err on the side of life" folks).

Professor Bainbridge notes that we cannot compare the Federal intervention in the Civil Rights era to the Schiavo case since the Executive was enforcing court orders in the 50's and 60's, not proposing to ignore them as would be the case for Jeb or W.

Which, in the end, simply proves Joe Ford's contention that we are bigots against the cognitively disabled, else Jeb or W could have moved to rescue Terri.

Will we ever have a Disabled Rights era?
