Thoughts on the Terri Schiavo Struggle

Unread post

I found this article sadly touching.www.newyorker.com/talk/content/articles ... rtzbergThe folowing quote is from the above linked article:"Her lack of awareness actually increased her metaphoric usefulness. Like a sixty-four-cell blastocyst, she was without consciousness. Unlike the blastocyst, she was without potential."The fight to get rid of The Inconvenience, whether it is a body in a persistent vegetative state, or an unwanted pregnancy, really boils down to a fight over potential. The poor woman has now been reduced to a metaphor. Marti in Mexico
