A Culture of Death: Disability Rights

Posted by Mark on March 29, 2005

This editorial puts the Schiavo controversy in its proper perspective:

The fundamental issue in Terri’s case is disability rights — not the right to die. Throughout all the extensive media coverage of the case, there has been only slight mention, but usually none at all, that nearly every major disability-rights organization has filed legal briefs to prevent what they and I regard as judicial murder. The protests are not only from pro-lifers and the Christian Right.

This makes more sense than anything else I’ve read on this issue.
