Bonus Thought: Two Objections
Earlier this week, after over an hour of personal observation and extensive viewing of videotapes, Mayo Clinic neurologist William Cheshire submitted a seven-page report saying he thinks Terri Schiavo may have been misdiagnosed. Cheshire believes that Schiavo, who is dying because her feeding tube was removed nearly a week ago, may not be in a Persistent Vegetative State, and that a new medical examination is called for. Those who want Terri to die cite two primary objections: (1) Cheshire has not done a medical exam of Schiavo and thus can't know her true condition; and (2) he is a Christian. Regarding the first, of course he hasn't, as Michael Schiavo and attorney George Felos have fought tooth and nail to prevent any such medical exams. I wonder why? Regarding the second, since when is it wrong for a physician to be a Christian? Should all Christians leave the medical profession? If they do, maybe they should take their hospitals with them, too.
