Today's commentaries

Tom Ambrose
Let's kill the elderly and homeless, too!

“Upon further reflection, I've changed my mind: Killing Terri Schiavo and those like her is a fabulous way make our nation run much more efficiently. But we shouldn't stop there: Let's kill the elderly and homeless, too!”


Joseph Farah
A sad day for America

“We permitted this happen to an American citizen, and we must decide now whether this will be an aberration, an experience from which we learn, or another slide down the slippery slope toward broad use of euthanasia.”


David Limbaugh
Schiavo: Awakening a sleeping giant

“It is just possible, contrary to my original thoughts, that the tragic Schiavo case will not usher in a slippery slope toward euthanasia, but cause a double-barreled backlash against both the ‘Culture of Death’ and judicial activism.”


Kevin McCullough
Good men did nothing

“So many pundits have written about judicial tyranny, we've just about gone cross-eyed in the process. Yet despite the disgruntled rumblings about activist judges, the will of the American people has not arisen to the degree that they have been willing to fight back.”


Alan Keyes
Focus of evil

“Those of us who have been in the thick of battle against the culture of death have argued for many years that the judiciary's willingness to allow murder in the womb would lead to murder in the world at large. Now our analysis has been verified by the judiciary's stubborn and ruthless advocacy of the right to kill a childlike disabled person named Terri.”


Tom Waleryszak
Is Judge Greer prejudiced against mentally disabled?

“I have been puzzled, as I have become familiar with some facets of the Terri Schiavo case, why Judge George Greer consistently favors the witnesses of Michael Schiavo, but summarily dismisses the sworn testimony brought forth by Terri's parents.”


Michael Arnold Glueck, M.D., and Robert J. Cihak, M.D.
Definition of Death Has Shifted

“Almost four decades ago, the fallacious concept of ‘brain death’ was introduced to pry open the legal doors to the killing of another group of unnoticed innocents - people who agree to donate their vital organs at death.”


Jan M. LaRue
Judging Terri

“The issue under Florida law is whether Terri ever expressed a statement that she would not want to live if she were in a condition that left her dependent upon a feeding tube. Under Florida law, that has to be established by clear and convincing evidence. The ‘evidence’ that Judge Greer found clear and convincing is what Congress intended the federal district court to review de novo under ‘Terri’s law.’ That did not happen.”


Kathleen Parker
The day 'reasonable doubt' fell from grace

“Objectively, there seemed on several points to be enough ‘reasonable doubt’ - the standard for any jury considering a death sentence - to avoid the final solution. Distilled to simplest terms, the crux was this: If Terri Schiavo would not suffer from dying, then she also would not suffer from living.”


Pat Buchanan
The execution of Terri Schiavo

“...Terri Schiavo was executed by the state of Florida. Her crime? She was so mentally disabled as to be unworthy of life in the judgment of Judge George Greer. The execution was carried out at Woodside Hospice. An autopsy will reveal that Terri's vital organs shut down for lack of food and water. She did not die of the brain damage she suffered 15 years ago. She was put to death. We have crossed a watershed in America.”


Cal Thomas
St. Theresa Schiavo

“This will not be the end of such cases, but the beginning, or more accurately, a continuation on the line of death that began in the womb in 1973 with Roe v. Wade and will now quickly advance toward the ‘retirement’ villages. The angel of death that moved through ancient Egypt at the first Passover was called ‘the destroyer.’ Our courts are his modern incarnation.”


Jonathan Rosenblum
If Michael Schiavo had met Yacov the Jerusalemite

“I haven't seen Marsi since she suffered a heart attack seven years ago that left her in what has been diagnosed as a persistent vegetative state (PVS). I do, however, run into her husband Yacov at the numerous family simchas of another author whose career she did much to shape.”
