What We Have Here

... is a failure to communicate.

Abc

Out of curiosity, I ran a Google News search.

Results 1 - 10 of about 1,960 for Terri Schiavo right-to-die.

Results 1 - 10 of about 357 for Terri Schiavo right-to-life


The latter look to be mostly op-eds, or include references to "right-to-life" groups or lawyers. The hard news stories are nearly uniform in the "right to die".

We all must know this is wrong in our hearts. Otherwise we would shoot them or put them to sleep and not starve them to death.

Sounds more like a right to kill (torture to death really).

Actually, the terms "right-to-life", along with "pro-life", are frequently used in the USA as synomyms for "anti-abortion". They are the political antitheses of "right-to-chose", or "pro-choice", or "pro-abortion".

All this predates Terri Schiavo, hence the predominance of the term "right-to-die" for her situation.
