Thanks to our friend J.S. for the following links, which I haven't had time to even read til now, much less blog about:
From Mel Martinez, on NRO. Thank God he won his election last fall; he's willing to speak up for Terri's life, and for all human life.
From Peggy Noonan, today on WSJ Opinion Journal. Her point: Congress, President Bush, for God's sake, do something! Make this right!
And finally, another on NRO, by Andrew C. McCarthy. Quote:
What kind of society goes into a lather over the imposition of bright lights and stress positions for barbarians who might have information that will save lives, but yawns while a defenseless woman who hasn’t hurt anyone is willfully starved and dehydrated? By a court — the bulwark purportedly protecting our right to life?The torture has begun. We didn't do enough. And we're all to blame, because over the past 40 years we didn't speak up enough, pray enough, teach enough, give a good example enough, and now our society has become so degraded that this can happen.
The torture starts Friday, at 1 P.M. Unless we do something to stop it.
And this won't be the end, it's only the beginning. You think the culture of death will be satisfied with just one innocent disabled victim?
First they came for the unborn, now they're coming for the disabled, soon they will come for the elderly, and some day, they'll come for each of us.
