Terry Schiavo Case- 15 years is enough.

I don't have much to add to the blogosphere storm of opinion. Michael Totten sums it up eloquently enough for me.

He is unimpressed with the political grandstanding and opportunism that this very private and tragic matter has created. He says:

"Here’s how the White House or Congress can score some genuine points with me: do something about people who are taken off life-support because their families ran out of money. (See Mark Kleiman for some details about that gruesome business.) Now there’s a real national problem. And doing something about it requires a lot more than grandstanding. Where's the "right to life" crowd on that?"

Regarding Mark Kleiman's post see Matthew Yglesias post. Also see John Cole's post here.

I found a sane (at last!) Christian position here. Here's a quote from this excellent article:

"I don’t view death as the end of the journey of a human soul.  I view it as a transition.  The God I believe in would not waste the total life experiences of a man or woman made in his image on a total and complete death; a dead end, if you will, with nothing to follow.  I cannot believe that it is God’s plan that the life experiences of a man; wisdom gained, lessons learned and love experienced, should, upon death, disappear as if they never were.   I believe that there’s something to follow the life we know on this earth; and I believe that most of the people fighting to keep the body of Terri Schiavo alive feel the same way."
