Prayers are urgently needed for Terri Schiavo!
Elinor Dashwood weighs in on the Terri Schiavo case:

Mrs. Schiavo collapsed in 1990, and here is where the questions begin: her husband says that her many broken bones – in the hip, leg, chest, back, knees, and ankles – were injured in her fall when she collapsed. My opinion is that they might all have been broken if she’d fallen off a three-story building onto a concrete pavement, but hardly in a fall onto a household surface; her femur (thigh bone) was broken, for heaven’s sake, and that’s a large, heavy bone that takes some breaking….

Here is a link to the results of the bone scan that revealed these fractures.
I like Elinor’s post for all the big reasons: her spirited defense of Terri, her spot-on analysis of the case, her observations on the culture of death, and her tying it all in to one of her favorite topics, the necessity of being guided by justice and duty instead of self-gratification.
(I also like it for a little reason: her introducing me to the word “stemwinder.” What a perfect little word!)
Prayers are still needed for Terri! Tomorrow, September 11th, Judge Greer is scheduled to set a date for removal of the feeding tube. If Judge Greer does not defer this, pending the resolution of the actions in federal court, Terri will soon begin her slow, agonizing death by starvation and dehydration.
