Human Exceptionalism

Life and dignity with Wesley J. Smith.

Nation Magazine Mocks Terri Schiavo


Last week's Nation, the left wing magazine on current events, hit a new low. The cover mocks Terri Schiavo by showing her being asked to smile to indicate yes when answering a series of questions, mostly meant to criticize her supporters, and her face not changing.

Not only is this to disparage a dead woman who was dehydrated to death because she had suffered a serious brain injury, it demonstrates that many on the Left really do consider people like Terri to be less than human, and hence, better off dead. What a disgrace.
