Some thoughts to ponder from Cal Thomas:
What if the polls are right and the public sees the removal of Terri’s feeding tube as an act of mercy and not murder? What then? In that case, we will know that the problem is not at the top – with judges and politicians – but in ourselves. We will see that our leadership merely reflects the secret desires of most hearts to worship the god of materialism, personal peace and pleasure. In that case, we will be getting our just deserts as courts – at the urging of relatives wishing to preserve their inheritance or be relieved of "burdens"- dispatch the angel of death to more of us who are not ready to die.
