The situation with Terry Schiavo is more and more troubling. Traditionally, it has been difficult to cut off life support for completely comatose people even when the family has decided that there is no hope for recovery. These days it is a completely different situation. Terri Shiavo's case seems much less clear. The woman has some consiousness. Seems to recognise family members and needs nothing more than a feeding tube to continue living. And yet the courts in Florida are fixated on her right to die with only some vague memory of the husband who abandoned her years ago to justify this position.
Morality has become so twisted lately. Instead of the sanctity of life, society is compelled to find reasons to kill anyone who might inconvenience others by living. If a reaon for killing Terri Schiavo exists, then a reason for killing anyone else can be found. We are now told that it is uncivilized to kill murderers but these same people who claim a moral high ground will kill unborn children and newborn children with disabilities and claim a "right" to death for Terri Schiavo who never asked for one and whose parents love and treasure the life she retains - for now.
Our new secular society has claimed all God's powers. How far is this from Nazi Germany or the Soviet Gulag's?
