Terri Schiavo and the Abortion Movement

Tuesday, 29 March 2005 12:00 AM

Why has the Left, which says that it is on the side of the defenseless and has accused the Right of starving the poor to death, insisted that Terri's starvation-dehydration is dignified?

The Left insists that Terri Schiavo, a 20-something newlywed, spoke in depth with her husband on major end-of-life issues, including her desire for cremation, but that although she had given these issues much thought, she never thought to make out a will expressing these carefully thought-out wishes. They also believe that her husband "recovered" these memories after Terri had been in a coma for many years. His common-law wife and two children have no bearing on the case.

These same people believe that Hillary Clinton, one of their most intelligent stars, had amnesia about the Rose Law Firm billing records.

Why has the Left advocated Terri's death? Why has the Left willingly believed the unbelievable? Because to defend her right to life would put an unwanted spotlight on the abortion question. Abortion has been liberalism's most spectacular victory of the past 50 years.

Marxism has been a disgraced philosophy except in Cuba and American universities. Johnson's Great Society has been shown to be a failure. America has continually rejected gay marriage. Referenda have ended affirmative action programs.

As conservatism continues to make great strides in reshaping America, abortion has remained relatively untouched, protected, as it has been, by unelected judiciary. If America can begin to change public policy on abortion, the Left will have lost its most powerful cause.

That is why Terri Schiavo must die.

If Terri Schiavo is allowed to live, America might begin to question what constitutes human life. For years, the abortion movement has stated that a fetus is not a human being because it cannot live on its own. As advances in medicine have shown that the fetus is a human being, the abortion movement changed its tack to choice. The abortion movement does not want the focus to be turned back on the viability question.

Like a fetus, Terri Schiavo cannot live on her own. To say that her right to life takes precedence over her husband's wishes puts the abortion camp in a tough position: Doesn't a fetus also have the right to life, even if the mother does not wish to carry the child to term?

These are questions that the abortion camp does not wish to see raised. Raising these questions makes the pro-abortionists uncomfortable. Therefore, it is expedient that Terri Schiavo die.
