"Terri Schiavo, the critically brain-damaged Florida woman at the center of a national debate over end-of-life care, has died."
Nat Hentoff in the Village Voice writes:
"What kind of a nation are we becoming? The CIA outsources torture—in violation of American and international law—in the name of the freedoms we are fighting to protect against terrorism. And we have watched as this woman, whose only crime is that she is disabled, is tortured to death by judges, all the way to the Supreme Court."
