I cannot believe that I am seeing liberals and conservatives using Terri Schiavo as yet another example of how evil, uncaring and generally subhuman
the other side is.
I have my own feelings on the politics of this issue, but I won't post about it. I know that people here - as everywhere - feel very strongly about
this case, and want to voice those feelings, and I'm not opposed to that. But to read some comments about how it's the liberals who want to execute
Schiavo or how the conservatives are all hypocrits really raises my hackles.
Basically, any politics I have on this are superseded by a feeling of extreme unease when I see how pictures of this poor woman - and even recordings
of her voice - are being disseminated everywhere, shredding her of any privacy or dignity. She's become the latest event in the mass media circus.
And now, she's become the latest ammo in the never-ending war between liberals and conservatives...
Give her life or release her, but for pete's sake, give her dignity!
