The Latest Bushism

“This [the Terri Schiavo case] is an extraordinary and sad case,” President Bush said in Waco, Tex. “And I believe that in a case such as this, the legislative branch, the executive branch ought to err on the side of life, which we have.” Quoted in The New York Times, March 24 2005.

    Just an obvervation – in the NY Times today, they quoted the Vatican’s newspaper,
    L’Osservatore Romano, as saying “Who can judge the dignity and sacredness of the life of
    a human being, made in the image and likeness of God? Who can decide to pull the plug as
    if we were talking about a broken or out-of-order household appliance?” If I’m not
    mistaken, God already took the life of this unfortunate woman. It is human technology that
    is keeping her alive. Given the Vatican’s opinion, are we not going against the will of
    God by keeping her alive via artificial means?
