Read the whole article. It is compelling compassionate and nonpolitical.

Okay, I read the whole article, but it is very political.

The writer has thrown his hat squarely in one political ring as evidenced by the faulty premises in the intro, and the conclusions which are chock-a-block with the catch phrases popularly bandied about by the religious right.

How could such a thing happen? This, after all, is not Nazi Germany

Nah, no political bias here....

Contemporary bioethics has become a natural ally of the culture of death, but the culture of death

Culture of death? Culture of Life? Bias bias bias

she succumbed in the end by being deprived of food and water by order of the courts

More bias. The court ruled that it was the wish of TS not to be sustained, and they PREVENTED her desire from being thwarted. In other words, the court protected the rights of TS to the best of its ability.

The writer skips lightly around the real medical work that was done to ascertain the condition of TS, a condition which was confirmed at autopsy.

He can sell his "culture of death" song and dance to someone else. I ain't buying.
