A few thoughts on the Schiavo issue

Sorry to bore my five loyal readers with more political mumbo jumbo... alas, when I finally make my road trip I'll try and make it up with moblogs, audioblogs, and daily recaps. Until then...

As much as its being covered, the press about the Schiavo case has barely discussed the absolute core issue: Quality of Life.

The real debate American's should be having is if your spouse should be able to make such critical decisions of life or death if you were to fall into a state like Terri Schiavo. If not, who should? Should marriage rights be negated at any point?

If you don't have a living will, is your fate in the hands of the courts, your parents, or nobody?

And besides all that, people need to look at Terri Schiavo, study her condition, and ask themselves if they were in the same situation, would they rather live or die?
