In the fallout of the accusations that Republicans put out a memo stating their intention to manipulate the Schiavo tragedy for political purposes, it behooves those of us on the right to check our armor and think about these issues on a more introspective level than we have previously chosen to. There are definitely some serious questions about our own consistency with respect to end of life issues. President Bush himself passed a piece of "futility of care" legislation in 1999 that appears to have been responsible for the death of a 5 month old baby recently. Read about the story here. Somewhat disturbing.
Another well-written article on the Schiavo story comes from Ann Coulter, who can often be rather ascerbic. Her piece today though is fascinating.
