I continue to be fascinated by Dr. Richard Land’s comments about this and other issues. I’m not entirely sure why, but perhaps it is because he is reported to have the ear of the President and speaks weekly by telephone with top White House aides in a briefing session. This quote appeared in The Tennessean this morning.
”This is a sad day for America. It’s a particularly sad day for anyone who is physically or mentally handicapped, or seriously and debilitatingly ill, and those who love them. The judiciary at the state and federal level condemned Terri Schiavo to death by dehydration and malnutrition on the hearsay evidence of a husband who is cohabiting with another woman whom he introduces as his fiancee and with whom he has produced two children.” ?
